Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Purchase of 12 No Etesia rotary mowers at a total of £10,350 via direct purchase, funded by way of the Council's Grounds maintenance revenue budget for replacement of plant and equipment.

Reasons for the decision:

To meet service delivery needs of the Grounds Maintenance Service in replacing current operational plant items that has reached the end of its effective utilisation period.

Alternative options considered:

Replacement of plant by way of hire/lease was not considered to offer good value to the Council and reduced flexibility how they are managed throughout the course of their anticipated life. Outright purchase is considered the most cost effective option and provides greater flexibility in how the asset is managed.
