The Landscape Group wins grounds maintenance contract for Colchester Borough Homes’ grounds

Colchester Borough Council has awarded the new contract for the maintenance of its and Colchester Borough Homes’ grounds. Eight companies took part in the initial tender process, with The Landscape Group (TLG) emerging as the winner; the new contract lasting until October 2023.

The existing contract expires at the end of March and, as with other public sector bodies, contracts are regularly reviewed and put up for tender. Furthermore, as the Council has been an accredited Living Wage Employer since 2013, any companies wishing to do business with it must also be Living Wage Employers. This policy requirement is being rolled out as existing contracts come up for renewal and one with which The Landscape Group is in compliance. The company has a heritage going back almost one hundred years and handles a variety of high profile maintenance and construction projects, including the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It has also recently received recognition as a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer and employs 1100 people.

The contract covers maintenance of green spaces, Castle Park, the cemetery, burials and the crematorium. Speaking of the contract win, Martin Packman, regional operations director, The Landscape Group, stated: “I want to say how delighted we are to have been awarded this prestigious contract and that we are looking forward to building a strong relationship with Colchester’s officers and residents. We know that the transferring staff from Veolia and Floratec bring very valuable skills and local knowledge and we welcome them into the TLG family.

“Our promise to the people of Colchester is that we will treasure their beautiful parks, cemetery and crematorium, sports fields and wildlife reserves and do our very best to enhance these throughout the life of this contract.”

Councillor Annie Feltham, portfolio holder for communities and leisure: “With tourism an important part of the local economy a key piece of the jigsaw is a quality provider of maintenance for our green spaces, including award winning parks like Castle Park and High Woods Country Park. The Landscape Group absolutely has the pedigree to deliver this with us.”
