To award the third and final year extension of the Weed Control Contract from 1st November 2019 to 31st October 2020 to Environmental Husbandry Ltd.

Alternative options considered:

The option of re-tendering the contract was considered and it was decided that the cost of re-tendering the contract, along with the time element involved, would cost more than any saving that might (or might not) be made through re-tendering.
