Grounds maintenance

68% people recognised issues with untidy gardens, litter and fly tipping. 

We know there have been issues with our previous grounds maintenance provider and we understand the impact this has on how people feel about where they live.

We are currently in an interim contract covering the winter months whilst we finalise a new permanent grounds maintenance provider.

We will update further around what you can expect from them when this process is complete. We have involved customers in the tender and have sought to secure the best value for money.
