  1. http://www.floodprotectionsheffield.com/pages/upper-don-catchment-options The link above will take you to the council pages that gives the information on the options currently being consulted on. At this stage, the consultation is asking about the concept of providing flood storage areas, amongst other options, but detailed work on the final locations of any ground works such as embankments will follow.
  2. There is a gross cost for the contract and profit share from Energy production, District Energy Network and Recycled Materials is offset against this to give the net cost of the service to the council.
  3. It's part of the overall contract so started when Onyx (Veolia's previous name) took on the contract.
  4. Yes I am and the Waste Management Contract falls within my portfolio.
  5. Income from recycling is subject to profit share between SCC and Veolia, as is the electricity generated from the Energy Recovery Facility and heat distributed through the District Energy Network. It's part of the overall waste management budget and offsets the gross charge for household waste collection and disposal.
  6. Seems very bizarre and I would have thought that they should have tried to contact the owner of the car and ask if it could be removed. Perhaps they were hoping it would get moved whilst they were working there that day? Be interesting to see if this has now been sorted out. If someone wants to give me the road, I can make enquiries and ask Amey to investigate with their sub contractors to find out what went on. With regards to the work in general, on a contract of this size, and over such a large area, there will be incidents where things don't always go to plan. There are problems with third parties such as Northern Powergrid (who have to connect up the lights and seem to work at their own pace all over the North, irrespective of interventions made by many Councils, Councillors and MP's alike), utility companies (who realise that if they want to replace mains or renew infrastructure, they need to get in before the work is done and have brought forward their investment plans), sub contractors (but that's Amey's problem to resolve) or just the weather that impacts on planned works. I think the important think is that they learn from mistakes, respond to problems, minimise disruption and try to prevent problems arising in the future. Clearly, they have a way to go on these areas to improve satisfaction ratings based on comments from the public on social media and the traditional press. Where the works have been done, the carriageways have a better ride, the pavements are safer and the street lighting is improved. The core investment period (CIP) is five to seven years, if I recall correctly, and Amey have to achieve certain milestones to receive scheduled payments. Delays to some zones mean work is being conducted in other areas to 'catch up' such as pavements and trees.
  7. The damage to Hopefield Avenue was caused by a burst water main, not by winter weather. They pot hole has had a temporary repair and will be fully restored shortly. Once Severn Trent have completed their work and confirmed this to Streetsahead, Amey will do the full repair.
