Boston Borough Council has agreed to become a shareholder in a local authority trading company to save £1.8m over the next ten years.

The council is joining East Lindsey and South Holland District Councils to enter into a new partnership with Public Sector Partnership Services Ltd. The two districts - who renewed their joint contract last year - saved £19m over the initial ten-year contract.

The company delivers IT, HR, finance, customer contact and revenues and benefits for the councils.

Cllr Jonathan Noble, the council’s portfolio holder for financial & commercial, said: 'I’m pleased that my fellow councillors have supported this proposal and I’m very much looking forward to working with Public Sector Partnership Services Ltd.

’We have seen from the work they have done with our neighbouring authorities just how beneficial the services they offer can be and they can help us achieve some substantial savings which is vital at a time when councils across the country are finding themselves in precarious financial situations.

'The move will also better align us with our strategic alliance partners, East Lindsey District Council, meaning our future work together can happen in a far more seamless manner.’

Staff working in those services will transfer to PSPS on 1 April 2021 with a commitment of no redundancies.
