Clear Channel Contract Extension and Deed of Variation

12/07/2023 - Clear Channel Contract Extension and Deed of Variation

Recommendations approved.


Reasons for recommendations

1.    Enables the Council to fulfil its green ambitions, providing living roof bus shelters in the town centre.

2.    Provides continuity with the existing shelters and ensures that the current infrastructure remains in place and is maintained at no additional cost to the Council.


Other options considered and rejected

1.    For the Council to install living roof shelters as part of the approved replacement program. This has been rejected due to the proposal from Clear Channel providing better value.

2.    Not to extend the contract with Clear Channel. This has been rejected as Clear Channel would remove all of the infrastructure at the end of the contract resulting in the disruption to resident and potentially increased cost to the Council as its seeks to source an alternative provider or to take on the installation and maintenance of these shelters.
