Glendale, the largest specialist green service provider in the UK, will look after the parks and open spaces of South Kesteven after being awarded a four-year contract by the district council. The maintenance contract is worth £900,000.
Driven by energy, ideas and innovation, the company will use its cloud-based programming software “Glendale Live” to monitor work across the area and will involve local people along the way.
Wyndham and Dysart Park will both have dedicated park attendants supervising the park facilities and providing high levels of maintenance and customer service all year round.
Glendale’s specialists will also deliver the full range of green services, including grass and hedge cutting, memorial testing, weed spraying, shrub pruning and watercourse clearance to the areas.
Around 25 staff will transfer to Glendale as part of the process, which will also create a grounds maintenance apprenticeship position in the South Kesteven area.
Andy Ansell, regional director at Glendale said: “We’re very pleased to have been awarded this contract and are very much looking forward to starting our work in this part of Lincolnshire.
“We have a plan in place now to begin the work needed to help these key parks achieve the prestigious Green Flag status, and will be working extremely hard to make sure we deliver on this important aspect of our new contract for our clients.”
South Kesteven District Council’s property development manager, Neil Cucksey said: “We’re keen to work proactively with Glendale to ensure the district’s parks and open spaces are suitably maintained to a good standard including retaining the Green Flag awarded to Wyndham Park.
“Its experience of working with local authorities across the country means Glendale understands the high standards our tenants and residents come to expect of our parks and open spaces.
“This new grounds maintenance contract will see its knowledge and expertise be shared to the benefit of communities across South Kesteven.”
The contract commenced on the 1st March 2014.
