East Lindsey District Council and South Holland District Council company makes savings

Compass Point Business Services, the company jointly owned by East Lindsey and South Holland District Councils, is on track to deliver its projected savings for 2012/13 financial year, says the council.

The company, which provides Customer Services, Finance, Human Resources, IT and Revenues and Benefits Services to both Councils will have made a saving in two years of £4.3m compared with the councils’ own spending when they were running the services themselves.

Of the £4.3m, the saving for East Lindsey taxpayers is £2.7m.

Portfolio Holder for Corporate Affairs at East Lindsey District Council, Coun Victoria Ayling, said: “Compass Point Business Services continues to provide the Council with an important saving at a time when we’re taking year on year reductions in our funding.”
