Consultant required for Eco Museum Activity and Engagement Plan (Cumbria)

2 replies [Jump to last post]


The South Cumbria Species Restoration Project is a six-year, multi-partner project that aspires to deliver a project of national significance with high local impact, with an aim to reintroduce 12 species of flora and fauna across 5000 hectares of lowland fringing Morecambe Bay in South Cumbria and North Lancashire. The Heritage Lottery Fund have awarded the University of Cumbria  (lead partner) a one-year (to November 2018) development grant of £174,500 to finalise the project plan and business case, and work towards an application for a five-year delivery grant of £1,090,700.

UoC will work with key partners Natural England (NE), Forestry Commission (FC) and Cumbria Wildlife Trust (CWT), and a suite of other organisations, to achieve a sequential programme of species restorations and community initiatives focusing on natural heritage.

As lead partner, the University of Cumbria wishes to appoint a consultant to carry out the necessary research and development, and to produce a detailed ‘Activity and Engagement Plan’ for a Morecambe Bay Ecomuseum. The plan will form part of the overarching Project Activity Plan’, as required by the HLF for submission of a second round heritage grant application, and should outline a way forward to achieving sustainable management.

Attached is a brief and invitation to quote. Total budget available is £6,000. 

Please contact myself ( / 07795122215) or via this forum for further information. 

Many thanks
