Seeking quotations for minor fencing amendment and JCB hire (deadline 19/5/19)

The parish council is seeking quotations for the following in connection with works planned at our allotment site later this autumn:

Location: Pitstone Allotments, Marsworth Road, Pitstone (opposite Woodz Pizza/Masons store).

  1. To relocate a section of perimeter post and wire fence approximately 8m long, to be moved by 1.5m away from the allotment site and into the adjacent track site.  If you walk up the track beside the allotments you will see some blue paint to mark the new location by the 2nd sharp bend (opposite plot 45 on the attached plan).  Will involve 3-4 of the existing posts.  We presume you will be able to re-utilise existing materials, but please specify in your quotation if any new materials are required.
    All contractors must possess public liability insurance (please supply a copy with your quotation) and be able to provide a risk assessment prior to undertaking work.
  2. To improve access for tenants, volunteers from the Allotment Association intend to lay some sections of track using a 20 tonne load of stone.  They require the assistance of a wheeled JCB with back actor and front shovel loader, complete with skilled driver.  Please provide quotations for both a full day rate and half day rate.  Please attach evidence of qualifications and suitable public liability insurance.

The parish council will need to provide evidence of insurance etc to the landowner before we can confirm appointment of the contractor.  Please be patient and bear with us whilst we obtain this permission.

Please submit your quotations by Sunday 19 May 2019 to or 9 Warwick Road, Pitstone, Beds, LU7 9FE, clearly marking your correspondence “ALLOTMENT QUOTATION”.  All quotations will be opened on Monday 20 May and anonymised data circulated to council for consideration at their meeting on 30 May 2019.
