Services company Sodexo has been awarded the five-year grounds maintenance contract with Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC).

 

The contract starts on 1 February 2019 and includes all SHBC-owned and maintained parks and green spaces, including sports pitches and bowling greens, along with highway verges.

 

Services to be provided by Sodexo include play-area inspection and maintenance, public toilet cleaning, tree surveying and arboricultural works.

Councillor Craig Fennell, Surrey Heath portfolio holder for places and strategy, said:  “This new contract offers a reduction in the cost of the service, while providing significantly better value for money.”

 

James Lloyd, head of horticultural services, Sodexo UK and Ireland, added that the firm would be looking “to promote well-being with sustainability… to ensure that Surrey Heath is a clean, green and safe place to live, work and visit”.
