Dear Kendal Town Council,
I am writing to make an open government request for all of the
information, to which I am entitled to request under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.
I would like answers to the following points;
1. Is grounds maintenance (ie mowing, tree work, weed spraying etc) work
undertaken by in-house teams or contracted out? If contracted who is the current contractor?
2. Who is responsible for managing in-house grounds maintenance teams or
3. What is the contact name, address and email of the person responsible
for managing grounds maintenance activities?
4. What is the annual grounds maintenance budget?
5. Do you receive additional Government, non-profit or voluntary
donations, specifically for grounds maintenance tasks?
I would like the above information to be provided electronically. I
understand that you are legally compelled to respond to my request within
20 working days after receipt of my letter. I would be grateful if you
could confirm in writing that you have received this request.
Dear Mr Wright
Thank you for your email. Grounds maintenance lies with the District Council rather than ourselves if you are referring to maintenance of open spaces, parks, verges, trees, weeds etc. KTC does not do any of this work - all we maintain are our allotment sites and flower planters. I suggest you send this email request to South Lakeland DC. If you would still like a reply from us in relation to our allotments and blooms please can you confirm.
