News from: Reading Borough Council
Reading Borough Council is consulting on proposals which may change the way some services are delivered locally. Due to the significant financial pressures being faced by the Council, a range of services will be market tested to see if they can be delivered more economically by third party providers, including:
-The collection of Council Tax and Business Rates, the management of the Council Tax Reduction Scheme, and payment of Housing Benefit
-Waste Collection and Streetcare
-Facilities Management and Building Cleaning
-Parks and Grounds Maintenance
-Highways and Civil Engineering
If you would like to take part in the consultation, the consultation documents are available online at: https://consult.reading.gov.uk and the deadline for responses is 14 September 2018.
