Overview of Swanmore Parish Council

Swanmore Parish Council comprises 10 members who are elected every four years by the electors of the parish. The responsibilities of the Council are many and varied and are specified in Acts of Parliament. These powers relate to planning, provision of recreational facilities, community transport, footpaths, street lighting, certain aspects of highway maintenance, litter, open spaces, traffic calming etc


The Parish Council operates a committee system.  This tender is being managed by the Open Spaces & Amenities Committee, with delegated authority from Full Council.   

Overview of Services Required 

The Grounds Maintenance Service required by the Council broadly comprises of grass cutting & strimming, clearance of hedge and fence lines, preparation of the sports grounds, cleaning of the sports pavilion, litter collection prior to these tasks, general clearance, the disposal of waste at various sites and routine checks at our toilet block.

Swanmore Parish Council is seeking tenders from suitably qualified and experienced organisations and sole traders for two three-year grounds maintenance contracts. We are offering two grounds maintenance contracts, as the financial management of Swanmore Recreation Ground is with Swanmore Recreation Ground Trust.  However, as all Trustees are Parish Councillors and the day to day management of the ground is with Swanmore Parish Council, it is anticipated that both contracts will be awarded to the same contractor.  


The land & property, as applicable to these services, is situated across the Parish of Swanmore.  Eight sites comprise: 

  • Grassed play areas with play equipment and exercise equipment

  • Grassed open spaces for informal recreation

  • Recreation land with sports pitches

  • Skatepark, Pump track, MUGA

  • Footpath

  • Sports Pavilion and Toilet Block

  • Associated car parks   

  • Allotments
