Corporate Fleet Replacement

This proposal is to replace the council’s operational fleet of 34 vehicles with 30 new vehicles on an invest-to-save basis.


The existing fleet as a whole is reaching a significant age and vehicles are failing and beyond repair. This has adversely affected service delivery where vehicles are unreliable and have broken down. This is increasing pressure on maintenance budgets and has resulted in the need to use short-term leases to cover vehicle downtime and to ensure service delivery.


This proposal will address these risks in addition to reducing future running costs.


This invest to save proposal seeks to utilise the annual revenue savings generated by this proposal to fund the capital repayments.
