Due to budget cuts, Milton Keynes Council has decided to outsource the borough’s landscape maintenance, which includes grass cutting, weed control and shrub, hedge and tree maintenance.   Parish and Town Councils were given some options to get more involved, and the one we felt best for CMK was to let the Borough Council manage the tender process and find the right contractor, then we would manage the contract. Since we are close to the grassroots we felt we had a chance of getting a better result!

However celebrex generic equivalent there are challenges. The budget for looking after CMK’s landscape has been cut to approximately £56,000 per year, which is only about half of the amount allocated in previous years. We would welcome suggestions from our residents about how we might achieve the best results within the limited budget.
