Landscape Maintenance and Associated Services

Landscape Maintenance and Associated Services - How To Contact Us

In July 2013, all town and parish councils in the borough were approached by Milton Keynes Council with an offer to take over grass cutting, shrub and low level tree maintenance. After due consideration including a financial appraisal of the offer made, the Town Council decided that it would accept the offer as it felt that local control of these services would ensure that the present service would be improved and some areas of planting could be regenerated with the funds offered.

A full tendering process was completed for the provision of the services and after careful consideration of the tenders received, the Town Council  awarded a 3 year contract for the provision of services in the parish to Marcus Young Landscapes, a locally based company specialising in landscape maintenance. This contract started on 1 April 2014 for an initial three year period and was funded in its entirety by a grant from MKC – there is no cost to you, as Council Tax payers, from the parish precept. Following a very successful three year partnership with Marcus Young Landscapes, this contract has now been renewed for another two year period until April 2019.

This contract provides services on estates, our open spaces and play areas. The Parks Trust are still be responsible for the maintenance of their portfolio of land, notably around the riverside adjacent to grid roads and MKC will still be responsible for mowing of grass verges on grid roads and Queen Eleanor St.
