Quote:The successful bidder is new to the borough and will have to secure a number of new premises from which to deliver the service. Officers have probed the providerís plans in relation to this and are satisfied that the proposed venues are suitable and have been budgeted for realistically in the proposed budget. However, the location of substance misuse related premises can be a sensitive issue for residents and communities located within close proximity. Lifeline has a wealth of experience in dealing with setting up new services in new locations. Officers will ensure that they work closely with residents, communities, partner agencies, relevant Elected Members and the provider to ensure that they location of these new premises is handled sensitively.
