Notes: The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM) and Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) will be jointly conducting a tendering exercise for Grounds Maintenance Services. In order to undertake an informed tender exercise both Councils wish to engage with the providers of Grounds Maintenance services to better understand the market, this knowledge will help shape our specifications and our contracts; and ensure that when we go to the market with this opportunity it will be fit for purpose and have the necessary flexibility to be effective for the duration of the proposed contract. The services to be covered are listed below:

  • Parks
  • Recreation Grounds
  • Play Areas
  • Amenity Grass
  • Bedding and Shrub Bed Areas
  • Various Sports Pitches that will need to be maintained where indicated to County Standards
  • Aviaries and Wildlife Management
  • Cemeteries
  • Allotments
  • Highway Verges
  • Housing Areas

Both Councils would like to invite suppliers to a free Market Engagement event from 09:00 to 12 Midday on Monday May 11th 2015 at the Council offices located in Wokingham. The Councils would like to take this opportunity to outline both Councils indicative plans and gain insight from the market on current conditions and options to consider for the forthcoming tender exercise.


We are asking potential providers to complete a short questionnaire so that we gather information about the views of current providers, and would be grateful if organisations you could complete it and return it to before attending the Market Engagement event.


Further details of the questionnaire and information about the outline requirements of both boroughs can be found within the attached questionnaire.
