II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Working with landowners to deliver pond creation and restoration within SoAs, initially funded directly though Natural England, thereafter through developer payments into district licensing schemes.

There are 2 key funded elements of this work.

— engagement and advice regarding the location and management of ponds. The undertaking of necessary checks and ensuring compliance with specification as well a hydraulic function check. In some instance it may involve applying for planning permission,

— physical works to create and restore (important note: for a pond to count a ‘restored pond’ it must currently be in a condition whereby it does not provide suitable aquatic habitat for newts).

We recognise that this work can be achieved in a variety of ways (for example suppliers may use contractors or pay landowners undertaking works themselves). Tender applications to be evaluated against:

— partnership working experience,

— delivery plan including understanding of scheme requirements and strategy for engagement with landowners in target areas,

— ability to deliver on lot 2 or work collaboratively with another supplier,

— skills/experience,

— costs.
