APCOA has worked closely with the Council since 2002. The new seven year, £6 million contract will allow APCOA to continue to support the Council by providing a proactive approach to enforcement within the Borough.
The new contract will include the roll-out of new, environmentally-friendly electric cars and bicycles to help maximise operational efficiency whilst supporting the Council’s objectives of delivering a clean, safe, healthy and prosperous Southend.
APCOA will also provide the Notice Processing services on behalf of the Council and School Crossing Patrol officers, alongside vehicle relocation and removal services.
In an extension to APCOA’s existing work in Southend the company will also be managing the Borough’s 44 off-street car park estate. This will include enforcement, life care maintenance plans for the car parks, and support with tariff management.
Kim Challis, Regional Managing Director for APCOA UK & Ireland said:
“We are of course delighted to be continuing our strong partnership with Southend on Sea Borough Council.
We’re looking forward to building on the progress we’ve made over the past 14 years and continuing to deliver an excellent service to residents, business owners and visitors to Southend.
The increased scope of the contract will allow us to offer a broad range of services across the on and off street estate which APCOA is uniquely placed to do.”
