Environmental Enforcement Update
After the last Cabinet meeting, Conwy County Borough Council approached Kingdom with a view to offering a short extension to their contract to the end of the financial year.
Officers met with Kingdom last week to outline the Council’s position and our preferred contract terms. Kingdom has notified us that they do not wish to extend their contract beyond 9 August 2018.
The Council was aware this was a possibility and had already started looking at alternative options, which could include bringing the service in-house or developing a partnership model with other local authorities. That work is on-going, and we will be able to update further in due course.
The issue of the cleanliness of the environment remains a high priority for the Council and we know it matters to the people of Conwy and our visitors.
Cllr Mark Baker said: “We wish to reassure the people of Conwy that the environment remains one of our top priorities. The vast majority of the people of Conwy are very conscientious, they don’t drop rubbish, they pick up after their pets, and are mindful and considerate towards the environment. But we would ask that any incidents of littering, dog fouling, or other concerns are raised and reported to us as we will act swiftly to deal with these. The services of Kingdom are just one part of the environmental jigsaw and we will tackle any issues raised with us to ensure the county remains a clean and desirable place to live, work, and visit.”
