North East Lincolnshire Public Procurement

North East Lincolnshire Council are aware there is a perception that public procurement can be bureaucratic and difficult to navigate but we are unsure what the particular barriers or issues are.  However we are committed to improving our processes so that they evolve and are easier to access and use for both commissioners and suppliers.

They are therefore seeking feedback from local suppliers, in particular the VCS and wanted to ask about their experiences of tendering for contracts with North East Lincolnshire Council and accessing the local authority’s e-tendering system (YORtender).

NELC are also looking for volunteers to try out their new online supplier questionnaire on YORtender to ascertain whether tender documentation is easier and simpler to complete on-line rather than the current process of downloading documentation.

To feedback and/or volunteer could you e-mail procurement@nelincs.gov.uk please by the 27 March ’20.

Car Parks – Changes for Consideration

In December 2017, the North East Lincolnshire Council adopted a parking strategy which sets out a revised approach to the management of parking in the area. NELC would like to know what you think about each of these possible changes and allow you to comment on how any changes in these areas would affect you. These changes could include:

  • Short stay car parks
  • Time limits in free car parks

Police Funding 2020/21 – Give Your Views

Deadline Wednesday 29th January 2020

The Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Keith Hunter, is asking residents to give their views about police funding in an online survey.

The General Election in December caused a delay in the announcement of the police funding settlement from Government. PCCs must know how much grant they are to receive from Government to allow them to calculate at what level they should set their Council Tax precept proposals to ensure a balanced budget. We are informed this announcement will now be made later this month but the PCC has a duty to consult with residents and make a decision on precept levels for 2020/21 to propose to the Police and Crime Panel on 6th February. This allows very little time.

The police precept is the part of the Council Tax that contributes towards the total funding available to the Police and Crime Commissioner to provide policing, community safety and victims’ services.

Tearoom and Pet Crematorium Survey

Deadline 4th February 2020

North East Lincolnshire Council is carrying out a project to improve the accessibility and affordability of our bereavement services.

They’re looking at the options of a tearoom and pet crematorium. Any income generated by the pet crematorium and tearoom will be used to re-invest in the service.

The tearoom would be in the grounds of the Crematorium, Weelsby Avenue, Grimsby, based in the former Crematorium Lodge.  This will bring a disused building back into use and will provide refreshments for visitors to the cemetery and crematorium and offer a venue for wakes and funeral teas. A flower shop will also be incorporated into this building. NELC would like the public to help them agree on a suitable name for the tearoom, which will have its own garden and offer a tranquil setting for refreshments.
