The London Borough of Waltham Forest (the ‘Authority’) is seeking to appoint a Single Provider to provide a Litter and Street Scene Enforcement Service. Littering, spitting, dog fouling and other antisocial behaviour affect the quality of the local environment and have an adverse impact on how places look and are perceived. These activities also negatively influence how attractive the local area is to residents, workers, visitors and investors such as businesses and their trade. In order to ensure that the environment is kept clean and safe the Council wishes to procure an Environmental Enforcement Service for street scene issues. It is expected that the service will be based on a ‘no cost — no risk’ financial model (to the Authority). This means that the cost of the service for the Council would be funded from FPN payments and that any shortfall would be a risk for the contractor with any surplus being shared with the contractor on an agreed basis.

The Farm Business Survey (FBS) is a long standing annual survey collecting data from a representative sample of all farm types in England. The FBS collects information on the financial, physical and environmental performance of farm businesses to inform and evaluate policy decisions. The FBS is intended to serve the needs of farmers, farming and land management interest groups, government, government partners and researchers. it currently also meets our obligation to supply data to the EU Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN). This follows the PIN (PIN Reference 2016-041680) issued on 31.8.2016 (https://defra.bravosolution.co.uk/web/login.html?_ncp=1441867266908.34013-1)
FBS is a panel survey. The farms are full-time or part-time commercial undertakings and data collected covers all aspects of the farm business; both financial i.e. output value and costs relating to all farming enterprises; diversified activities; revenue from agricultural support and agri-environment schemes and physical as well as labour and geographical characteristics. Data is used to construct a management account for each farm comprising a profit and loss account, balance sheet and net worth reconciliation. A key aspect of the survey is the individual feedback provided to co-operating farmers to enable a review of their business performance. The FBS methodology has been established over a number of years based on sound management accounting principles and in line with the requirements from FADN. The purpose of this PIN is to advise of a further engagement event to be held on Thursday 1st December to seek innovative options for the delivery of the Farm Business Survey.
