Serco takes pride in managing and maintaining streets and public recreational spaces on behalf of local authorities. From street cleaning and litter services to landscaping and horticulture, from sports ground management to winter gritting and flood response.
We recognise that maintaining high standards in our streets, parks, and recreational spaces is critical to building attractive local environments, enhancing resident wellbeing, and securing inward investment. We help local authorities to offer the right mix of facilities and amenities for as many people as possible, whilst managing scarce funding.
Serco provides a wide range of ground and street services to residents in their local communities. We consult with residents to understand the environmental improvements and local amenities that matter most, and design services that meet the needs of different groups within local communities.
Services are delivered in accordance with our own best operating practice, in a cost-effective, safe, and sustainable fashion. We are experts in promoting enjoyment, use, and participation in order to increase resident satisfaction and make local open spaces more productive and affordable. This involves prioritising scarce funding, implementing strategies for income generation, and delivering more for less by harnessing the energy and capacity of local community groups, in order to minimise the cost to local council tax payers.
