Provision of Dog Warden Service

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Provision of the outcome of the European tender process for the provision of the Dog Control Service by private contractor.


That the Dog Warden Service Contract be awarded to the private contractor as stated in the report for a period of 3 years with the option to extend for two further periods of between 1 and 5 years.

Reasons for the decision:

The contract specifications and tender submission by the recommended contractor will ensure enhanced services to the Council and Breckland residents and represents best value, with a financial saving for the Dog Warden Service of just under £25,000 on the current budget provision.

Alternative options considered:

  1. Not extend the existing dog control contract and run the risk that there will be no provision after April 2015.


  1. Accept the recommended contractor to provide the Dog Warden Services to the Council over the next three years with an option to extend the contract for a further two years.
