Invitations to tender

We will detail all current invitations to tender for contracts for goods or services above £25,000 and provide links to tender documents where appropriate.

Tender for Horsey Wetland Restoration Project

The Broads Authority, through the CANAPE project, is seeking a suitably qualified contractor to create a new wetland site on the Upper Thurne River just north of Horsey Mere.

The existing site is a grass and rush pasture grazed by cattle. The site already has an earth bund around the northern and eastern and southern edges. These will be topped via an excavator and possibly a soil stripper and five surface scraped compartments ready for planting and seeding wetland vegetation.

The main parts of the tender include:

  1. Gaining licences and complying with water vole and protected species mitigation.
  2. Installing a water control structure through a flood bank to take water from the Waxham cut to the bunded field for filtration and growing wetland plants.
  3. Excavating low-level earth bunds following herbicide application and tillage, connecting to existing low bunds, to create five wetland compartments of a total of 1.3ha wetland.

Tender for Mutton's Mill Millwright

The Broads Authority is seeking a suitably qualified and experienced contractor to carry out millwrighting works at Mutton’s Mill. Mutton’s Mill is a grade II* listed drainage mill situated on Halvergate Marshes and within the Halvergate Marshes Conservation Area.

A programme of repair is being carried out as part of the Water Mills and Marshes project, led by the Broads Authority and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

One of the objectives of the project is to provide construction students at City College Norwich with experience and knowledge of traditional building skills and so there will be an expectation that the successful millwright will provide some guidance to students and can obtain a clear DBS check.

It is anticipated that the wider repair programme and millwrights’ work will commence late summer 2021 and will take approximately 1 year.
