Design Brief - Interpretation Map Panels for Furness Line Railway Stations

*Please read the full brief (below) for deadline, submission process and details before submitting an application*

Morecambe Bay Partnership wishes to appoint a designer to create 10 interpretation map panels for stations around Morecambe Bay on the Furness Railway Line as part of our HLF funded ‘Headlands to Headspace’ Landscape Partnership Scheme which has been in delivery since 2014.

Morecambe Bay Partnership has been working with the Furness Line Community Rail Partnership to develop ways in which the Bay’s stations can act as ‘hubs’ to access the key natural and cultural heritage sites/stories around the Bay. The panels will raise awareness of these sites/stories and will add to the visitor experience by signposting them to areas of particular interest.

The 10 panels should have a consistent look but the information on each will  be unique to each station’s location within Morecambe Bay, highlighting the key attractions, activities and opportunities for visitors in that area. 

This work will be delivered in line with Morecambe Bay Partnership’s Interpretation Strategy and informed by the Destination Morecambe Bay brand.  (Download from the attachement below)

This activity is being delivered by Morecambe Bay Partnership with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Coastal Communities Fund.

Submission details:

  • Deadline for submission:  5pm Friday 4th January 2019 (Late submissions will not be accepted)
  • Submissions should be sent by email to Michelle Cooper and copied to Sophie Cringle and will be acknowledged.
  • Value: we have a budget of between £10,000 and £15,000 (excl VAT) for this commission subject to the quality of proposal, experience and value for money.
  • The contract is expected to be delivered by March 2019.
