Public Realm Services Future Operating Model pdf icon PDF 520 KB

A review has determined that the council’s current public realm services and contracting arrangements will not deliver the council’s medium to long term aspirations.


The council’s vision is to design and deliver new public realm services that are fit for the future embracing technology and digital innovation, a transition to electric plant, vehicles and new materials to meet net zero carbon by 2030, investment in our people that support development and innovation enabling the service to continually improve, maximising resources and opportunities to best meet the needs of local residents and communities.


To achieve this vision the council, working in partnership with the Public Realm Service Contractor, seek approval to select and develop a Future Operating Model that has been determined as the best model to deliver this vision while minimising service and financial risks during this period of change.
