Grounds Maintenance on Housing Land Business Case and Consultation

June Cabinet approved a Procurement Strategy for the tendering of Grounds Maintenance of Parks, Open Spaces and Housing Estates.

It further noted that following consultation with residents and tenants in accordance with Section 105 of the Housing Act 1985 the strategy could change with respect to housing land.

The report will advise the results of that consultation process and include and describe a business case to bring the service in-house.

Cabinet will be asked to consider recommendations concerning the respective options of bringing the grounds maintenance service on housing land in-house or rather retaining it as Lot 2 in the wider Grounds Maintenance and Parks procurement.
