ELDC and Boston Borough | Strategic Partnership proposed

Kirkby on Bain Parish Council has forwarded an interesting article by Councillor Craig Leyland, Leader, East Lindsey District Council:

Strategic alliance between Boston Borough Council and East Lindsey District Council

I wanted to make you aware of a proposal that I am bringing forward in regard to a closer working partnership for ELDC with Boston Borough Council.

Boston Borough Council and ELDC have worked together closely in recent years to deliver a number of services, including Building Control, Community Safety/CCTV, Waste collections and more.  This partnership working has been successful and has enabled us to save significant sums of money and still provide high quality services.

Over the course of the next few weeks the Leader of Boston Borough Council, Councillor Paul Skinner, and I, will be bringing forward proposals in regard to a closer, more formal partnership going forward, which would build on the current working arrangements and strengthen ties between the two Councils.  This would take the form of a strategic alliance.          Continue reading
