A consortium of north east councils has reached a unique agreement with
Northumbrian Water, which will save money, and help to protect the
environment at the same time.
The five-year partnership - negotiated by the North Eastern Purchasing
Organisation (NEPO) - has identified possible financial savings of up to
£500,000, as well as potentially saving tens of millions of gallons of water
per year.
Newly appointed NEPO chair cllr Lillian Sutheran and Steve Hull,
Northumbrian Water's commercial director, will sign the contract at
Gateshead civic centre this Thursday.
NEPO includes Durham, Easington, Gateshead, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough,
Newcastle, Northumberland, North Tyneside, Redcar and Cleveland, South
Tyneside, Stockton and Sunderland councils, who work together, in order to
save costs and improve services to hundreds of thousands of local people.
