CONTRACTORS given the job of looking after Fenland's parks and open spaces look to have won a three year extension.
Continental Landscapes asked for a five year extension but said three years would be the minimum they could accept.
Fenland District Council's Cabinet met yesterday (thu) to hear the recommendations put forward by portfolio holder Councillor Peter Murphy.
The report said an extension would be "advantageous to the council as it will allow time to fully consider the most efficient and effective way to deliver the grounds maintenance service in the future."

Cllr Murphy did point out, however, that the contract, first awarded in March, 2003, did not perform well initially but following discussion and negotiation was revised in early 2005.
Since then the contractor and the council have "fostered a partnership approach" and the service is now satisfactory, reflected in many improvements to the council's parks and open spaces.
