Housing association tenders for grounds maintenance contract in South West

The Westward Housing Group deal will run for 5 years.

The housing association wants to appoint contractors "to provide high quality and cost-effective" grounds maintenance services to "enhance the reputation of Westward Housing Group through the maintenance and improvement of its horticultural features on its estates".

Westward has not placed a minimum turnover requirement in the hope it will encourage SME's and micro companies to apply. It says it is "more interested in the quality of your work, that you are qualified and hold the right abilities to carry out the work".

Each contractor may only bid for four lots.

Areas covered by the lots are:

Lot 1: Bodmin
Lot 2: SE Cornwall
Lot 3: Plymouth City
Lot 4: Plymouth North
Lot 5: West Devon
Lot 6: Torquay
Lot 7: Paignton & Brixham
Lot 8: Newton Abbot
Lot 9: Teignmouth - Starcross
Lot 10: Buckfastleigh - Chudleigh
Lot 11: Exeter & Crediton
Lot 12: Cullompton & Tiverton
Lot 13: Bude

The closing date for receipt of expressions of interest is 30 December 2022.
