This is for a short term 5-year contract. A shorter contract is being procured as the Council is aware that it needs to identify current and future demand and whether new facilities are required to achieve local outcomes.

Following this process, the next steps will be identified to achieve a long term solution, including the procurement of a new operator when the five year contract comes to an end and the type of contract that will be required e.g. DBOM.
