Public open space in the Council’s ownership is maintained by ID Verde under a 10 year grounds maintenance contract. The performance-based contract was jointly procured with Hastings Borough Council and AmicusHorizon and originally run from 1st December 2012 to 30th December 2022. This contract has been extended to November 2024.

£200,000 savings per annum have been made to grounds maintenance services as part of the council’s re-setting agenda including savings resulting from the discontinuation of the Park Ranger Service, changes in mowing regimes and the relinquishing of maintenance on land not owned by the council.

The Tree works contract was reprocured jointly with Hastings Borough Council in November 2022 and was awarded to Elite Arborists from 1st December 2022 until 30 November 2025 plus a further 2 years if required.
