Expression of Interest Brief FINAL Feb 2024

Paid Opportunity

The successful applicant(s) will work with multiple landowners, tenant farmers and graziers of stated units of Morecambe Bay SSSI and Lune Estuary SSSI which have been identified as having saltmarsh and / or vegetated shingle habitat historically utilised by roosting waders and wildfowl and breeding bird assemblages, but which are now known to be heavily disturbed by recreational pressures. Successful applicants will be able to draw up costed specifications of the potential interventions ready for when further funding comes available. Please note the project does not have funding for delivering the practical interventions at this stage.

We are open to all suggestions on how best to deliver the project including paid employment, secondment, freelance & consultancy, a mix of these options or something we might not have considered & we welcome applications which involve more than one person in the delivery, recognising the skills sets needed.

Deadline for questions about the brief: Friday 15th March at 5pm.

Updates made to brief as a result of any questions submitted: Wednesday 20th March at 5pm.

Deadline for Expressions of Interest: Friday 5th April at 5pm.
