Contract will supplement work done by existing service provider

Tandridge District Council is looking for a contractor to cover specialist grounds maintenance services in its  parks and open spaces.

The contract would supplement work done by an existing contractor, appointed in 2013, which covers grass cutting and other ancillary works in parks and open spaces, together with grounds maintenance of approximately 100 authority housing sites.

The work required in this contract includes an emergency response of within an hour, inspection and maintenance of sports pitches, play areas and skate parks, fencing, groundworks, arboriculture, winter maintenance and planting.

Occasional works may include clearing overgrown vegetation and plots from allotment sites, digging/clearing drainage ditches, raising and lowering flags for Remembrance events, installing fencing, assisting in preparing for public events and roofing repairs.

The council expects the successful bidder to have, or acquire, a secure depot facility within the boundaries, or within one mile by road of the Tandridge District.

The contract runs for five years from 1 November 2015 and may be extended for up to a maximum of a further 3 years. It could be worth up to £3.2 million.

The time limit for requests to participate is 3 March at noon and selected candidates will be invited to tender by 6 April. Contact Guy Stapleford 01883722000 or
