Contracts for Asbestos Surveying and Analytical Services

The Cabinet Member for Housing previously approved the appointment of two sets of asbestos surveyors for a period of 12 months with provision for an extension of up to 3 months from 5th April 2019. Since then, and despite many meetings indicating the contrary, one of the providers cannot now carry out those services for the Council.

The strategy, as set out in October 2018, was to maintain no fewer than two suppliers for every service requirement. Since the provider is no longer willing to provide the service it has become necessary to appoint a replacement.
