The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has confirmed that it is building on its long and successful partnership with NSL for the effective delivery of civil enforcement services in one of the most densely populated areas in the country. Originally appointed by the Council in 2006, NSL has now been awarded a new 12 year £65m contract to capitalise on its progressive approach to civil enforcement within the London borough.
The move will see the authority’s 100 Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) benefit from introduction of new real-time intelligence, advanced deployment methods and new environmentally friendly electric bikes to help maximise operational efficiencies and response times. With effect from July, there will also be some service consolidation with the neighbouring borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, operating vehicle removal and relocation services, using EURO6 compliant vehicles, from a shared co-located vehicle pound.
Cllr Tim Coleridge, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Cabinet Member for Transport, said: “Our priority is to keep traffic moving and make sure residents and visitors have somewhere to park. Working with NSL has allowed us to achieve this and I am sure the new technologies and initiatives it is introducing in Kensington and Chelsea will be of benefit.”
Mark Hoskin, NSL’s Executive Director for Local Government, said, “We are of course delighted to be continuing our strong partnership with Kensington and Chelsea. Building on the progress we’ve made over the past 10 years we will be able to deliver improved outcomes for the benefit of all members of the local community.”
NSL’s partnership with The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea covers on-street enforcement, housing estate civil parking enforcement, vehicle removal and relocation, pound management.
