Southampton City Council says it expects to put out to tender more than £50m worth of contracts once it becomes a unitary authority next year.

A report to the authority's resources sub-committee outlines projected capital construction work transferred from Hampshire CC of £4m in addition to £19m current city work. On top of that new projects will see substantial new contracts placed - a swimming and diving complex will be worth approximately £9m and the proposed Western Approach road £5m.

Other contracts include expenditure on maintenance of buildings and properties - housing (£4m), education (£2m, hardware and software computing purchases (£4m) supplies (£4m) leasing of vehicles and equipment (£3.5m) and energy supplies.

Cllr Richard Bates, chair of the resources sub committee said: 'Under unitary status Southampton City Council will be an even bigger player in the regional and local economy. Officers will ensure that the people of Southampton will receive both a high quality of service and the value for money which well-managed contracts can achieve.'
