It’s business as usual at the City of Port Phillip, with Citywide continuing its recent purple patch of good form by securing five open spaces contracts retendered by Council.
Despite the hotly contested nature of the works, Citywide was reaffirmed as Council’s preferred supplier when it came to providing maintenance services to Port Phillip’s trees, parks and gardens, sports fields, natural heritage areas and community centres, for the next five years.
One of Melbourne’s most picturesque and popular municipalities, the City of Port Phillip is characterised by its aesthetic appeals and its array of land uses, which includes sporting precincts, parks and gardens, beaches, boutique shopping strips, esplanades and residential sectors.
Housing some of the State’s most recognisable and iconic landmarks, Citywide will continue to maintain a number of Port Phillip’s prized natural assets, including Alma Park, the St Kilda Botanical Gardens, St Vincent Gardens, Port Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Port Melbourne foreshore, O’Donnell Gardens (next to Luna Park) and the West Beach foreshore.
Citywide’s Open Spaces Divisional Manager, Dean Grant, was pleased with the news of his teams latest win. “To win all five contracts up for retender was an incredible achievement by all involved. Our Open Spaces team have done a fantastic job for the City of Port Phillip over the preceding years and their hard work and commitment has been rewarded by this victory."
“We’ll be working very closely with Council and its staff over the upcoming months and years to ensure we provide a service, which will enable the City of Port Phillip to continue to thrive and flourish,” said Dean.
Aware the City of Port Phillip’s reputation resides in the appeal and quality of it open spaces, Citywide will continue to manage and maintain these highly valued assets in accordance with the importance and sensitivity they are held by within Council and the community.
