Green light for parking services to go private?

BUCKS County Council’s Overview and Scrutiny Commissioning Committee has this week supported a decision to invite tenders for a parking enforcement service to cover the whole county.

Cabinet member for transport Valerie Letheren approved the procurement process on January 18. A call-in submission, made by county councillor Michael Edmonds, led the scrutiny committee to examine of the decision.

On Tuesday, Mr Edmonds made his submission to the committee challenging the decision and Mrs Letheren outlined her responses.

After considering the evidence, the committee decided to support Mrs Letheren’s decision.
