Contract renewal for the provision of environmental advisory services.


The Deputy Chief Executive/Director of Corporate Services submitted a report seeking approval to the renewal of the contract with Merseyside Environmental Advisory Service for the provision of specialist advice on the Local Development Framework and planning applications for a one year period to 31st March 2010.  Funding was shared between the 5 Merseyside District Councils and Halton Borough Council, providing economies of scale and specialist services that could not be effectively provided at District level.  This Council’s contribution would be shared between the Corporate Services and Technical Services Departments and could be accommodated within existing budgets.


RESOLVED – That, in accordance with paragraph 5.1.2 of the Council’s Contract Procedure Rules, Cabinet agrees to extend the MEAS contract on the terms described above for the 2009/10 financial year, until 31st March 2010, at a cost for core services of £31,673 for 2009/10.
