To seek delegated authority from Cabinet for the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport to make the arrangements for the Deed of Variation to the Integrated Waste Management Services Contract (IWMSC) to be executed.
23.1 The Cabinet considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport together with a further report containing exempt information set out in a later agenda item.
23.2 It was RESOLVED to:
1) note the report and approve the principle of entering into the Deed of Variation to the Integrated Waste Management Services Contract; and
2) delegate authority to the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport to agree the final terms of the Deed of Variation to the Integrated Waste Management Services Contract
23.3 The Councils could have pursued dispute resolution earlier in the negotiations; however, this would have incurred considerable costs for the Councils and may ultimately have been unsuccessful in some or all of the disputes. The agreement reached with Veolia is considered to be positive for the Councils and resolves a number of current contractual and legacy issues dating back to the 2007 Holding Agreement.
23.4. The negotiated agreement represents a £10m reduction in contract costs across the life of the contract. Based on the Joint Working Agreement between East Sussex County Council (ESCC) and Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC), the ESCC share of this is £6.9m and BHCC £3.1m. Further detail is provided under a later item on the agenda that contains exempt information.
