Our Decision Making Process

Expressions of Interest will be considered by the Council, based on the information supplied and on the statutory guidance and regulations published by the Government. One of three decisions will then be made; to accept, accept with modifications or reject.


The relevant body who has submitted the expression of interest will have presented a strong case that they could provide the relevant service. The acceptance of an expression of interest will then trigger a procurement exercise to find the best provider of the service.

Accept with Modification

We may seek to agree an expression of interest being modified if we believe we would otherwise reject it. If an agreement cannot be reached, we may reject the expression of interest.


The grounds for rejection an expression of interest are set out in Section 6 of the Community Right to Challenge Statutory Guidance.
