Client: Buckingham Town Council
Our Grounds Maintenance Contract with Buckingham Town Council commenced in July 2017 (we were asked to take the contract on at short notice) and we have since been successfully providing a service which not only delivers to the specification but has resulted in improvements to the public spaces and gardens of the town. The requirements of the Buckingham Town Council contract includes the cutting of grass on public highways, including the A421 Buckingham Ring Road, footpaths within the town, all open spaces, amenity areas and recreation grounds. Buckingham Town is within a conservation area and our work regularly brings us into contact with many of Buckingham’s 12,000 residents. The parks and public spaces that we maintain within Buckingham include Chandos Park and its multi-use games area (MUGA) overlooking the River Great Ouse, Bourton Park and Stratford Fields, a large recreational area with footpaths, playgrounds, picnic sites, special dog exercising areas and a mile-long exercise circuit around the park. We also cut all hedges and small trees and our operational teams are all trained to horticultural standards and we always make particular reference within our schedules to avoid disturbance to wildlife including the nesting season and hibernating animals.
