Grass Maintenance Update 29/04/20
Update relating to Grass Maintenance by Peaks & Plains Housing Trust (29/04/20):
“On the 27th March Idverde (the Grounds Maintenance contractor) stopped work so they could take stock and decide how to proceed in the light of COVID-19. They also furloughed a lot of their staff.
“In the three weeks that staff were furloughed Idverde formulated a plan in which they would resume works with added social distancing measures. This will result in the Spec not being meet as there is only one operative per vehicle instead of two. This means instead if the grass being cut every two weeks it will be approximately three weeks (we don’t know the exact timings until they complete a round). Idverde started back up on the 20th April meaning we expect them to complete the first cut of the new schedule within the next two weeks.
“Idverde have said that they will be open with their accounts and that any savings they have made from the furloughing scheme they will reinvest into our contract.”
