“We are a local family business and we strive to build and maintain sustainable landscapes for our communities now and for the future. To be able to do this in Banbury in partnership with the town council is a great opportunity.
“This new contract will address the carbon footprint of the town by including tree planting initiatives and the enhancement of biodiversity in the town’s green spaces and busy urban areas.
“We already maintain business premises and residential developments within the town and were able to show during the tendering process that we offer exceptional customer service and professional contract management”.
Cllr Colin Clarke, chairman of the town council’s general services committee, said: “The council is looking forward to working with 4th Corner Landscaping and is pleased that its new grounds maintenance contract has gone to a prestigious local company.
“In January, the council committed to tackling climate change and it is good to know that 4th Corner has plans in line with that commitment.”
