Application for preferred contractor listing 28 November 2016

Menheniot Parish Council is inviting contractors, individuals and voluntary groups to be listed as preferred contractors for a range of works that are needed to maintain facilities and roadways within the parish boundary.

Being a preferred contractor means that the council will have your company details on file so that when we need work carried out, we already have a list of possible contractors to choose from.  It does not mean that you are an exclusive contractor or have priority rights when we do choose.

Some of our contract work extends over a period of years, whilst other work could be short term, as in the case of emergency repairs. If you would like to be included on our current list, please complete the details attached and return it to us.

This is the scope of work for which we need to employ outside contractors. On request, we can supply detailed specifications for each of the contracts below.
