Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Commercial Gas is currently being delivered in the East of the city by Leeds Building Services.  In the remainder of the city, Commercial Gas is delivered through two contracts with Mears Group Ltd.

Following discussions with LBS and Housing Leeds, it is proposed that LBS deliver the Commercial Gas provision city wide as part of the LBS Growth Strategy, from April 2019.

Allowing all Commercial Gas works to come through LBS will result in LBS generating an additional income exceeding £250k  per annum, therefore this will be a key decision and subject to call-in.

Reason Key: Expenditure > £250,000;

Wards Affected: (All Wards);
