It is for both Councils to take responsibility for ensuring deficits do not recur. Under the terms of the Section 19B Directions, both councils have tendered a significant proportion of the relevant work to the private sector. North Lanarkshire Council are also developing a number of public/private partnerships. East Ayrshire Council’s DLO is undertaking some remaining work subject to robust benchmarking with private sector prices.
