Under the Freedom of Information Act, could you please answer the following in relation to banner advertising:
Do you allow banner advertising/sponsorship on lamp posts?
If so do you allow advertising or purely non-commercial basis i.e. council ads?
If you only have council messages would you are interested in generating revenue as well and who would we contact.
Do you have any contracts in place for purely production and install of banners & brackets etc.?
If you have purely for internal messages what are you paying per panel / banner for production and install if this?
How much money does the Council spend on them annually? Please breakdown by panel?
Are you interested in significant savings for a better product if so who would we contact?
Do you have any current contract in place?
If so who with, when did it start and when does it finish?
Who manages the contract internally?
Please clarify if the council gets any other benefits from having these.
How much revenue has been generated out of any contract in the last 12 months and at what percentage has the council received revenue share?
Apologies for the delay in responding to your FOI request however its just been brought to my attention. Brentwood Borough Council is not the Highway Authority for Brentwood and therefore is not able to use the lampposts within the Borough for marketing purposes. We have a limited number of Advertising Hoardings and only one is not let at Chatham Way. If you’re interested in making us a rental offer I would be very much interested – I’ve attached a plan for your information.
