Forthcoming Key Decisions

This page lists the key decisions due to be taken within Leeds City Council over the next few months. Details of each key decision will be published below at least 28 clear days before the decision is due to be taken

What is a 'Key Decision'?

A key decision is an executive decision which is likely to:

  • result in the Authority incurring expenditure or making savings over £500,000, or
  • have a significant effect on communites living or working in an area comprising one or more wards.
  • Article 13 of the Council's Constitution provides more details about which decisions will be treated as key decisions.

    How to get more information about a particular key decision

    The agenda papers for Executive Board meetings, and the documents being considered by officers taking key decisions, are available five working days before the decision will be made through the Council's website.

    The contact details of a lead officer are provided for each key decision listed below. Please contact the lead officer directly if you wish to obtain copies or extracts of any other listed documents, or if you wish to receive details of further documents as they become available. Sometimes the papers you request may contain exempt of confidential information. If this is the case, the lead officer will explain why it will not be possible to make copies available.

    02/02/2020 - Domestic Pest Control Service - Approval to undertake a procurement exercise to appoint an external contractor

    The Council provides domestic pest control services to deal with a range of pests. The administration of the service is carried out internally but the actual pest control work itself is currently outsourced to a contractor. The Council charges customers directly and pays the contractor their agreed fee per job. 

    The current contract expires on the 31st May 2020. It is proposed to continue using an external contractor to provide the service and to undertake a procurement exercise to appoint an external contractor. It is the intention to offer a 12 month contract with the option to extend for a further 12 months.  This relatively short contract period will allow the service to continue whilst the proposal to set up an in house service can be fully and properly explored.
