5. AWARD OF PARKING ENFORCEMENT SERVICE

This report seeks a decision on the award of Three Rivers DC parking enforcement service to Hertsmere Borough Council (HBC). The service would be run as a partnership arrangement through a Section 101 delegation of the TRDC function to HBC. 

The decision to proceed with this option will enable a Service Level Agreement to be drawn up with HBC as the preferred provider based on their proposals and to allow mobilisation of the project ready for commencement in early April 2018. As a delegation of function, TRDC are not required to go through the usual public procurement exercise.

6. INTRODUCTION OF CASHLESS PAYMENT PARKING TECHNOLOGY

In recent years the Council has removed cash payments for a number of services in order to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Following this corporate decision to minimise cash transactions and the introduction of such policy into some Council service there is an expectation that the policy should extend into the area of parking payments. This report details the proposed introduction of cashless payment technology for parking charges in the District.

  1. EXCLUSION OF PRESS AND PUBLIC

 

            If the Committee wishes to consider the remaining item in private, it will be appropriate for a resolution to be passed in the following terms:-

 

            “that under Section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972 the press and public be excluded from the meeting for the following item of business on the grounds that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined under Paragraph 3 of Part I of Schedule 12A to the Act. It has been decided by the Council that in all the circumstances, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.”

 

            (Note: If other confidential business is approved under item 3, it will also be necessary to specify the class of exempt or confidential information in the additional items.)
