Tenderers should note that there are another 44 off street car parks throughout the Borough that are free and not currently enforced but which may become enforceable by the successful Tenderer during the Contract term,on request of the Council and on the basis of the same costs that the Tenderer will supply within its Tender Package.

Technological innovation, societal and demographic change are transforming the way we work, spend our leisure time, travel and shop. Those same forces will also transform how we own and use cars, and consequently the way we park.

During the term of the Contract, it is envisaged that the Council may wish to explore other more innovative parking schemes and methods of parking enforcement and management as technology evolves, some of which the Council may ask the successful Tenderer to trial as part of a pilot scheme and the cost and scope of which will be agreed between the Council and successful Tenderer in accordance with the terms of the Contract.

The Council requires a supplier that can respond effectively to these changes as well as the (non-exhaustive)list of tasks above, enabling the Council to enhance user satisfaction, driving a more efficient parking services model that uses a simple, socially inclusive, responsive, coherent and smart approach that the community as a whole can embrace; as well as driving technological improvements in parking services.

Following the successful conclusion of the tender process, the Council is seeking to contract with a competent organisation for the supply of all equipment and applications to support the Council's parking management service as well as supply labour and parking management expertise. The equipment and applications that the Supplier will supply are fully defined in the Specification, but for illustrative purposes they include items such as the hand-held devices used by Traffic Attendances for enforcement, Traffic Attendant uniforms and back-office software systems.
