To approve the capital expenditure to replace vehicles in the 2020/21 financial year.
(i) that authorisation be given to the replacement of 97 vehicles, in the 2020/21 financial year, to be used by Council departments and partner organisations, with a total value of up to £3,585,500 (including the additional cost of Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) as referred to in paragraph 2.2) by way of purchase followed by a sale and lease back arrangement as outlined in paragraph 7.9 or whichever method of funding is deemed appropriate following full financial appraisal; and
(ii) that the upgrading of 24% (38% for Council departments and 14% for partner organisations) of the petrol and diesel fuelled vehicles highlighted for replacement in the report to ULEVs at an additional estimated expense of £235,000 included in the total amount stated in paragraph 2.1 be supported. £171,000 of this is for Council departments and £64,000 for partner organisations. This is the extra cost to purchase a ULEV over a standard petrol/diesel powered vehicle. The £64,000 additional cost for partner organisations will be recovered from them through increases in hire charges.
