It was noted that a request for a Confidentiality Agreement has been received from Wiltshire Council (WC) however there are errors contained within it.
However, WC have confirmed that the reference to BBLP is correct as the original contract was awarded to BBLP who then sub contracted to The Landscape Group which then became Id Verde.  When the time comes for negotiations WC will be sharing the contract where it has reference to BBLP; and therefore, should be included in the Confidentiality Agreement.
