1.1 The Council agreed to run a tender process for the Green Screens Programme to build and install greens screens made of ivy in movable planters at 16-20 schools in Lambeth. Tenders were received from providers with the relevant background in design, building and installation of green screens. The Council now seeks to appoint the successful bidder, to deliver the Green Screens Programme during the financial year 2021/2022.
1.2 The current administration’s 2018 manifesto committed to install green screens at Lambeth’s schools that were located next to a main road. This report considers progress to date and recommends a programme to deliver against this ambition by May 2022.
1.3 The requirement for reducing exposure of vulnerable residents to air pollution fits within the Council’s Borough Plan 2019-2021. These improvements are important to the Council as this will help to improve air quality, bringing it within the EU limits set out in the Air Quality Action Plan.
1.4 This is a Gateway 3 Procurement Report – the Council’s final procurement report stage that, in this instance, recommends a decision to award a contract.
