Cinderford Town Council invites local businesses to tender for inclusion on our Local Framework List. Whilst we follow national guidelines on procurement, we are keen to use as many businesses within Cinderford, the Forest of Dean and Gloucestershire. This will not only support businesses in these challenging times, but will also greatly contribute to the Town Council’s Climate Emergency Agenda of reducing the carbon footprint of the goods and services it produces.

The Town Council are looking to develop a Framework list of local contractors and suppliers that we can call on to commission local goods and services.

If you are interested in being included on the Town Council’s Local Framework please complete the application form below and e-mail to:
