Brent Council’s ‘super-contract’ plans could fall apart
Richmond Council has pulled out of proposal to share services with three local authorities
A “super-contract” which could see Brent share public services with three boroughs is in danger of collapsing.
At Brent Council’s last executive meeting, a report was passed which recommended sharing services such as street cleaning, park maintenance and waste collection with Barnet, Hounslow and Richmond.
However, Richmond recently pulled out and it is feared Barnet – Brent’s preferred partner – are also seeking their own option.
Barnet Council is considering a proposal to support the “One Barnet in-house Street Scene” including street cleaning, waste collection and recycling.

A Brent Council spokesman said that “ideally” they would like to join forces with other boroughs but insisted they would press ahead with a new contract regardless.
He added: “A new contract would deliver high quality services and value for money. If they [other boroughs] decide not to participate then Brent will still develop its own public realm contract.
