Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Corporate Director, Environment and Assistant Director, Resources approve the submission of a grant application to Keep Britain Tidy (KBT) for a grant to a maximum of £27,500 to purchase specialist chewing gum removal equipment to enhance the street cleaning service

Reasons for the decision:

Submitting an application for a grant towards equipment is considered an opportunity for NYC to purchase additional equipment to tackle chewing gum and enhance the street cleaning service across the area if the application is successful as there is no funding for this within existing budgets.

Alternative options considered:

Not to submit an application but this would result in no funding to purchase the additional equipment.
