Dear Miss Smith,
 
Oxford City Council – Reference: 8949
 
Further to the response below, we have now been provided with some further
information regarding your request as follows:
 
We are no longer installing new benches in new locations as we are at
capacity within our parks, however we are now looking to replace old
benches and replacing them. If the client has a preferred park and
location please let us know. [1][email address]
 
Once highlighted we will check and see if it's down to be replaced as some
benches are already occupied plots.
 
Our memorial benches range in cost from £850-1500 depending on bench and
finish.   £850 will get you a basic bench as seen here on a concrete base,
addition extras such as a resin finish can be added for an addition of
around £200 pending the bench size.
 
Cast iron benches tend to be at the top end but not advised in a park,
mainly used as street furniture £1500
 
I good example of a resin bench is just outside the office on the way to
the garden centre.
 
The client will need to purchase the plaque themselves if agreed but will
need to install it on the bench for insurance purposes.    
 
Yours sincerely
 
Kathryn Winfield
