Public Protection Commissioning Review pdf icon PDF 74 KB

·         Lee Morgan - Head of Housing and Public Protection

·         Mark Wade - Housing Business Manager

·         Councillor Mark Thomas - Cabinet Member for Environment Services



Additional documents:


·       Lee Morgan attended with Mark Wade and Cabinet Member Mark Thomas and outlined the services as a whole

·       Explained that most of the services are frontline and so have direct impact on residents

·       Most of the services are statutory and 61% of the budget is realised by income

·      Drawing comparisons with other Councils is difficult because each one runs these services in different ways

·       Charges could be made for Pest control but charging residents means that uptake of services drops which is detrimental to Public Health.

·       Swansea charges around the midrange for services such as weddings in comparison to other Councils

·      The department is very good value for money could be publicised more

·      The commercial opportunities may be being pursued for little return for effort when statutory services may be impacted
