Question to Kent County Council [with answer], 14 February 2013: Roundabout Sponsorship

February 11, 2013 10:50 AM

Question by George Koowaree to Bryan Sweetland, Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Waste

Would the Cabinet Member for Environment, Highways and Waste inform the Council of the management and delivery of the Kent roundabout sponsorship programme by way of completing the following table and providing detail of how the income generated has been spent?

2008-09

2009-10

2010-11

2011- 12

2012 - current

The number of roundabout sponsorships available

How many sponsorships have been 'sold' annually

Income generated for KCC

Costs incurred

Answer

The table provided by Mr Koowaree has a number of horizontal and vertical columns which make it virtually impossible for me to read out in the Chamber. However it has been duly completed as Mr Koowaree has requested, and hard copies will be available in the normal way on the table outside.

The annual income generated by Commercial Services from the roundabout sponsorship programme is returned to KCC as part of the annual dividend paid back to the authority's bottom line, and this income is not ring fenced. I am therefore unable to provide detail on how this income is spent once returned from Commercial Services.
