of 3 years, with an option to extend by a further 1+1 years


2. Upon the conclusion of the competitive tender process, to award such contract to the successful bidder


3. In consultation with the Cabinet Member: Public Protection, Parking and Libraries, to exercise the option to extend the contract by a further 1+1 years on completion of the initial 3 year term.
