Signs Advertising Saracens
Received: 19 February 2021
Hello. I would like to make the following request under the terms of the FOI Act.
In October 2019 I made a request, your reference number 5695561, about the contract between Barnet Council and Saracens for the use of 58 signs advertising the club, placed at various points around the borough. I was told that the authority was 'exploring new arrangements' in regard to the renewal of the contract.
Please give me copies of all correspondence relating to these 'explorations' and tell me, on a yearly basis since 2013, how much revenue has accrued from the advertising on these signs.
If there has been no contract for several years, and no income, why has the council left these signs in place and given free advertising to the club?
