Quotations are invited for the supply and planting of 3 No. trees on South Green, Staindrop.
Staindrop Parish Council intends to plant 3 No. trees on South Green in Staindrop, subject to the agreement of the landowner who is currently being consulted. The location and type of tree proposed is as follows:
- Office Square – 1 No. Rowan Tree
- Opposite Gorst Hall – 1 No. Alder Tree
- Near The Deanery – 1 No. Lime Tree or similar
The price submitted should include costs for the supply and planting of the trees and making good, together with any costs for weed control etc. The Council would also wish to include some limited planting of crocus and daffodils immediately adjacent to the trees as part of the planting. It is proposed that this be undertaken by local schoolchildren, so liaison will be required between the Parish Council and the successful contractor in relation to co-ordinating this aspect of the project. The precise location of the planting areas will be agreed following the selection of the successful contractor. Bidders should be appropriately qualified and have relevant insurance. The trees must be planted before February 2017 and invoices submitted before 27th January (which is the deadline for the Parish Council to claim the grant which is supporting this project).
The award of the contract will be dependent upon the agreement of the landowner to the works.
Quotes for the above work should be submitted either in writing, or by email no later than 5.00 p.m. on 15th December 2016 to:
The Clerk to Staindrop Parish Council, 34 The Slack, Butterknowle, Bishop Auckland, Co. Durham DL13 5HU
