From 1st December 2010, idverde, has been responsible for the maintenance of green spaces all over Teignbridge, including approximately 400,000 square metres of grass, 20 sports pitches, three bowling greens, 40,000 square metres of hedgerow, 1,500 square metres of flower displays, and 25,000 square metres of shrub beds.
The initial five-year contract was extended to November 2020 at the end of its initial five-year term in 2015, and maintenance to the district’s cemeteries and 21 closed church yards was added to the scope of works.
Our high standards of maintenance were recognised in 2014 with a British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) National Award for Courtenay Park, Newton Abbot. We also maintain the District Council’s three Green Flag accredited parks: Courtenay Park, Decoy Country Park and the Den.
In 2012, we were also pleased to successfully bid to add Shaldon Approach Golf Course and the Dawlish Lawns area to the contract, which includes fine turf maintenance and floral displays.
Cllr Anne Fry, Teignbridge Executive Spokesperson for Recreational Services said:”We have a firm commitment to providing top-quality parks and open spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy, and keeping them safe, tidy and presentable is important to us all.
“To secure such a financially competitive deal which saves taxpayers money would in itself be cause for celebration; but with the added bonuses of apprenticeships, recycling schemes, an early-morning clean-up squad, a regenerated community glasshouse, and training and support for local charities and community groups; we’re thrilled with the value this new contract brings.”
In addition to maintaining Teignbridge’s parks and open spaces, We have also committed to provide a range of value-added features to help improve the service. These include:
