Bus shelter contracts

Stevenage Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Stevenage Borough Council,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to request the following information:

1. Do you have a contract with a commercial partner to provide and maintain your bus shelter infrastructure? If yes, who is your contracted provider?

2. What are the start and end dates of your bus shelter contract, including any optional extensions?

3. What is the financial value of your contract?

4. How many bus shelters does the contract cover?

5. How many of the bus shelters covered in the contract have advertising shells? What is the breakdown of these advertising shells between traditional print and digital?

5. What restrictions are there within the contract in relation to advertising in your bus shelters – for example, are there any industries or topics that cannot be advertised?

Yours faithfully,

Scott Lloyd
