Kent offers £5.6m arboriculture contract

Kent County Council is looking for contractors to join a 5-year framework to provide arboricultural services across the county.

The contract, worth £5.6 million in total over five-years , will be carved up into four lots, each worth £1.4 million.

Contractors are invited to apply for multiple lots – which divide the work across four geographical areas – but no contractor will be awarded more than two.

The contract, which begins in April 2009 will run for a minimum of five years with an option to extend for a further two years.

Arboricultural works, including tree felling, tree surgery, stump grinding and tree planting will be awarded on a call-off basis.

The areas defined in the lots are North West, South West, North West and South East Kent.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 3 November 2008.

For further information contact the Kent County Council’s Environment & Regeneration Directorate, 1st Floor, Invicta House, County Hall. Or you can contact Lynn Leigh on (01622) 666111 or via email.
