July 2013 – Written Question – Advertising income from public open spaces

by Nigel Bakhai on 25 July, 2013

Question

How much sponsorship income did the council raise in 2012/13 for maintaining flower baskets, or public open spaces in the borough? How does the council promote these green spaces for sponsorship?

Answer

As of 4th April 2013 the Council’s annual income for roundabout, planter and small open space sponsorship was £22,500. There are currently 16 sites available for sponsorship of which 13 are currently sponsored. This scheme is managed on behalf of the Council by Marketing Force. The current contract with Marketing Force does not allow the scheme to be extended to other sites. Officers hope to re-let this contract in the coming year and as part of this exercise will be seeking to extend the scheme.
