The Pond Bank Stabilisation ‘Public Consultation’ was completed, comments were brought together and a tendering document was created. The tendering document was opened up to tendering bids.
This will recover the areas where the bank has eroded and replace lost biodiversity.
Petersfield Town Council went through the tendering process for the Pond Band Stabilisation, and had received 8 initial quotes which were shortlisted to 4. The 4 shortlisted companies made a presentation to members of the Grounds Committee and Officers on 2nd August and a recommendation of the preferred contractor will be made to the Grounds Committee on 12th September.
19th September 2019 Petersfield Town council awarded Five Rivers the contract to carry out the Pond Stabilisation work.
It is hoped that the work will commence in the Autumn of this year, with planting work happening during late Spring 2020.
