City Council’s Streetscene and Parks Team to be fully in house from 1st December

The City Council is delighted to announce that from Thursday 1 Dec 2022 all street cleaning and maintenance of the city’s parks and open spaces will be undertaken by a team of wholly Salisbury City Council employees. Previously, parts of these services had been delivered by Idverde, but in Oct 2020 the City Council agreed that these services should be brought in house. By bringing these services in house it is hoped to provide more efficient and locally controlled services. An unavoidable consequence of the period of transition will be a temporary reduction of staffing levels until the recruitment process restores staffing to greater capacity. Obviously, this will in turn, temporarily result in a slightly reduced level of service. Some workers who previously worked for Idverde will transfer across to Salisbury City Council and will bring their experience of working in the city with them which will really benefit the team.
