Dear Sir

 

Please see below answers to your Freedom of Information questions.  

 

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? – By in-house teams.

 

2. Who is responsible for managing in-house grounds maintenance teams or
contractors? The Divisional Manager – Open Space Service.

 

3. What is the contact name, address and email of the person responsible
for managing grounds maintenance activities? (See below)

 

4. What is the annual grounds maintenance budget? These operations are
delivered as part of a combined service that also undertakes other tasks
(including Street Cleansing). It is therefore difficult to give an exact
figure in relation to these specific activities. A good estimate would be
£3.6 Million

 

5. Do you receive additional Government, non-profit or voluntary
donations, specifically for grounds maintenance tasks? No.
