Aspire Landscape Management covers the day-to-day work of mowing, pruning, planting, clearing and litter picking on various spaces owned by the council including open green space, parks, floral beds, cemeteries, areas around housing sites, hedges, sports pitches and associated footpaths.
The service is also working with Kent County Council (KCC) Highway Services on areas of work that we can enhance in order to improve quality standards.
This initiative is a key part of delivering the adopted Land Management Improvement Plan, which aims to make the borough a pleasant and enjoyable place to live, work, visit and enjoy.
By enhancing Ashford’s overall appearance and attractiveness we aim to raise civic pride and make the borough more attractive for residents, visitors and businesses. This links to Priority 4 of the Corporate Plan [pdf] 11307KB – Attractive Ashford, where the council’s aspiration is to achieve an environment that creates higher standards of public space design, alongside improved standards of presentation of key green spaces.
The in-house service gives us greater flexibility as we are able to move resources where they are needed most, with an ability to be more fluid with changing priorities. It is also more cost effective. For more information read Aspire Landscape Management FAQs.
