Green spaces maintenance renewed

Green spaces maintenance renewed for spring

23 February

Elmbridge Borough Council is renewing its relationship with Burleys with a contract to look after its green spaces. The five-year grounds maintenance contract will start in March and offers an option of a two-year extension. Burleys looked after the contract for 18 years until 2014 and is delighted to be working with the Council again.

The contract will see a 30 strong Burleys team provide a full green spaces maintenance service, including providing annual bedding displays, pitch maintenance, playground inspections, paddling pools and maintaining parks and open spaces. It will also involve looking after the Borough verges under a separate contract.

Councillor Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said, "Elmbridge has a wide range of parks, gardens, and open spaces which are valued by the many thousands of people who use them every day. It is important to keep them maintained to high standards for the enjoyment of the whole community. We look forward to working in partnership with Burleys to keep the parks looking at their best and deliver the quality of service residents are entitled to."

Burleys MD Phil Chapman said “Our colleagues are delighted to reconnect with the members, staff and residents of Elmbridge. We look forward to being able to provide the high standards and quality service expected by the residents and stakeholders of the Borough as well as delivering the Council’s strategic objective of a unique, green and attractive Elmbridge.
