A new contractor to provide a specialised Tree Works service

We want to improve the safety and appearance of your estate.

Clarion Housing Group requires a suitably qualified Tree Works contractor to provide services across its housing stock.

The key considerations when looking for a new contractor are:

  • The supplier must have experience of and be able to provide evidence of carrying out a similar service provision in the Social Housing sector. Ensuring minimal disruption and inconvenience for residents
  • Contractors will need to comply with all relevant H&S legislation as well as Clarion’s H&S requirements
  • Contractors will be required to hold the required qualifications
  • Contractors need to be committed to an environmentally friendly waste management programme and be committed to supporting a positive environmental impact and the stainability of our estates

We are legally required to issue formal consultation with our residents on new contracts where the residents may be liable for costs of more than £100 per annum. To ensure that we can recover the full costs of our services we have issued this notice to all residents who have access to a communal area.

This does not mean that the cost will be over that amount. At this stage of the procurement process, we are not in a position to confirm the cost for individual residents but costings will be provided in the next stage of this consultation process (Notice of Proposal).

Clarion Housing has a duty to have regard to written observations made within the consultation period.

In order to do so, you should send your comments and observations in writing to:

Section 20 Team
Clarion Housing Group
