Response

Many thanks for your Freedom of Information request pertaining to Direct Labour Organisations within the Council, this has been passed to me for a reply as the responsible Officer for elements of the service areas.

In response to your request I can offer the following answers:

1. The Council does not employ a direct labour organisation for buildings maintenance, this has recently been contracted out to the private sector.

2. The Council does not employ a direct labour organisation for buildings maintenance outside of social housing, this has recently been contracted out to the private sector.

3. The Council does not employ a direct labour organisation for highway maintenance, this function is the responsibility of Essex County Council.

4. The Council does STILL employ a direct labour organisation for the maintenance of parks, open spaces, cemeteries and general grounds duties.
