Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes




That the Cabinet approves the tender from Kompan Ltd for the provision of the design, replacement and installation of playground equipment for the London Borough of Hillingdon for a four-year period from 1 December 2022 date to 31 December 2026 and at the estimated value of £1,600,000.


Reasons for decision


Following a procurement exercise, Cabinet approved a contract for the planned refurbishment of 23 of the Borough’s 150 playgrounds and welcomed the significant investment being put in by the Council for the children and residents of the Borough.


Alternative options considered and rejected


Cabinet could have decided not to refurbish the playgrounds, resulting in their ultimate closure or instead used ad hoc contractors which would have affected the ability to deliver a planned programme of refurbishment.
