Description

Hastings Borough Council and the East Sussex Procurement Hub wishes to obtain market feedback, in advance of procurement, on proposals for the development and operation of Grounds Maintenance Services. The Council’s Grounds Maintenance Contract ends 31st October 2022 and we are informally looking to see what providers can offer with regards to these services prior to any tender process commencing.

The Council and the East Sussex Procurement Hub are at an early stage in development of its proposals for the Grounds Maintenance Contract and seeks input from the market as to what might be the most potentially advantageous way of packaging and scoping any future procurement opportunity. This exercise will also provide an opportunity for the Council to obtain insight into how the market may approach the delivery of the services in question. It also gives useful early insight into the likely level of interest from that market.

The scope of the service includes maintenance of Parks, Open Spaces, Sports and recreation grounds, Industrial sites, Playgrounds, Allotments, Cemetery and closed churchyards, Watercourses, Environmental areas, tubs and planters.
