Hounslow Council is set to take back the management of the borough’s parks, all of which it owns, from contractors Carillion.

At a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, 21 November, proposals are being discussed for the Council’s wholly-owned company, Lampton 360, to be used to handle parks management from April 2018.

Councillor Samia Chaudhary, Cabinet Member for Green Policy and Leisure, Hounslow Council, said: “We believe there is an opportunity by doing this to maintain our parks to the same high standards, but also enable investment in new vehicles and equipment, and make savings of over £1 million per year.

“It is important to note that there will be no change to the ownership of the parks which will all continue to be owned, as now, by the Council. Lampton 360 will be contracted to undertake the operational services required in our parks on behalf of the Council.

“This will help the council to deliver its promise to make Hounslow a cleaner, greener borough, encourage active and healthy communities, and provide quality services and value for money.”
