The Council is legally obliged to produce statutory notices, promote key services and provide information to residents to enable them to access its services. The awarded contractor will therefore be expected to provide a weekly publication which meets the standards required to run statutory notices with a borough wide circulation. The publication will need to be delivered door to door in line with ABC audited reporting standards (see for more details). If the contractor does not currently meet ABC audit rules, the Council will allow it a period of up to 9 months to gain ABC verification.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich cannot guarantee an on-going minimum or maximum volume of statutory notices and other advertising.

The contractor will also be expected to ensure that the advertisements are published in the context of engaging local editorial content which helps to positively inform local residents about the measures that their neighbours and local service providers are undertaking to make the borough a great place to live, work, learn and visit.
