Having considered the merits and benefits of the options available, namely comparing price and specification of suitable equipment it is the view that this equipment is the only suitable one to do the work and after discussion with the Parks Workshop Supervisor and Area Supervisors, all are in agreement with the decision taken, to purchase the Ransomes Spider at a total cost of £12,913.
