In the past when the Council have conducted refurbishment and repairs on school buildings (and other Council buildings) they have often brought in tradesmen from outside the locality as they have used Framework Agreements that has meant traders from Sheffield and beyond doing roof work (when we have roofers in Wrexham).
It will be such a shame if the same system has been used for these contracts if local traders have not been successful in securing any of the work.
Has anyone seen the names and locations of contractors or could Wrexham.com find out?
I am sure Wrexham contractors work outside the county boundary .Get a life
Not really sure how this is relevant. Isn’t it a reasonable expectation that local council taxpayer money should be fed back into the local economy when contracts are up for tender? If local contractors are available to undertake the work, they should, by all logic, be able to undertake the work for a lower cost than a contractor in Sheffield/Manchester/London and therefore ensure that our money is being spent to best effect?
Yes, but cannot access Local Authority IT support if they go outside of the WCBC ‘approved’ supply chain.
