7276 Forestry and woodland futures: assessing impacts of forestry strategies. Forestry Commission partnership

Historic England Heritage Protection Commissions | Published February 5, 2016  -  Deadline February 26, 2016
cpvs

This project responds to Government’s commitment to increasing England’s forest area and the benefits that they provide to environment, economy and society. It aims to use the opportunities offered by the historic environment to inform how England’s woodlands can expand, and protect those heritage assets and areas that are most sensitive to future change. The key products shall be: A) A Woodland Futures map and report, comprising: • Digital mapping using available data to indicate the future scale and type of woodland expansion • Analysis of potential for and sensitivity to woodland expansion of different historic landscape types and areas, using the National Character Areas and Agricultural Landscape Types as a framework for reporting a) how woodland has developed since c. 1900 and b) where large to small scale planting is most likely to have an impact B) A Woodland Expansion Assessment Framework for use at a strategic and site-based level. This will help users identify at the earliest stage the potential for woodland expansion, and also the key issues to inform woodland/forest design and the long-term interpretation and protection of historic features and heritage assets.

IS CONSULTANCY

DEPARTMENT FOR ENVIRONMENT, FOOD & RURAL AFFAIRS | Published May 7, 2015  -  Deadline May 27, 2015
cpvs

Forestry Commission England (FCE) is divided into two main areas, Forest Enterprise England (FEE) and Forest Services (FS). These areas are supported by a National Office Team based in Bristol. FCE is reliant on effective and efficient IS Services to achieve successful delivery of its corporate targets. This requirement is commissioned specifically by FEE as the biggest organisation within England with the largest user base and systems landscape. The scope though will need to cover the requirements of FS due to the close integration currently in place. We currently benefit from the provision of Information Services as part of the Forestry Commission’s Corporate Services Team based in Silvan House in Edinburgh. This IS Service is a shared and integrated service delivered across FC to colleagues within Scotland, to our Central Services teams and to Forest Research, as well as FCE. The service covers the full range of IS functions including Enterprise Systems Delivery, Desktop Management, Data Networks, voice networks, Business Solutions Development, Radio and Electronics and Service Desk. Integral to these technical services, is also the provision of a broader set of management activities. As the Forestry Commission continues to devolve over the next 5 years, FEE and FCE more broadly needs to take responsibility for its own delivery of corporate services which includes Information Services. It therefore needs to develop a strong understanding of its current and future IS requirements, and options and business cases for future service delivery. Please express your interest in this tender to Sarah Willmott sarah.willmott@forestry.gsi.gov.uk by email or in writing by the 27th of May 2015 to allow us to notify you of any questions and answers we may receive.

The Forestry Commission (as the lead partner of the Foresters’ Forest Heritage Lottery Funded Landscape Partnership Programme in the Forest of Dean) is inviting tenders for the development, implementation and reporting on a programme of archaeological works to support the community exploration of heritage landscapes in the Forest of Dean.

Contract for the repair/rebuild of Dry Stone Ha-Ha with Iron Railings (CL2) at Westonbirt, The National Arboretum.

DEPARTMENT FOR ENVIRONMENT, FOOD & RURAL AFFAIRS | Published August 18, 2015  -  Deadline September 14, 2015
cpvs

The Forestry Commission will be awarding a contract for the repair/restoration of a Dry Stone Ha-ha with iron railings fixed (CL2) at Westonbirt, The National Arboretum. NB This contract is for the Dry Stone Ha-ha only. The railings will be managed by a separate contractor. Restoration and repair is required to the existing wall that runs at approximately 625 metres in length and is 0.9 metres in height around the downs at Westonbirt Arboretum. The ground level must be flush with the coping. Where rebuild rather than repair is necessary, all stone is to be carefully removed and the wall is to be taken down to the footing. All footing stones will then be reset or replaced where necessary, and the wall will be rebuilt. Where the wall is to be rebuilt, the banking must be cut back to a distance at least equal to half the height of the finished wall. If the material behind the wall is loose or liable to slumping, cut back further and/or slope the face of the bank away from the wall. Contractors are to backfill any cut back sections. Anchor stones for the railing supports are set at 1.3metre intervals. Reuse as many existing anchor stones as possible, logistics regarding railing removals and fitting will need to be considered and discussed between contractors. This Ha-Ha forms one of the main boundaries in the grounds between the Old Arboretum and the Downs. It is in a highly visible part of the Arboretum and so your work will be viewed by the majority of our visitors. As this contract is part of a larger boundary restoration project there is scope for further Dry Stone Walling work beyond this contract. Please express your interest in this tender to Daniel Reid at the Westonbirt Arboretum by email by the 14th September 2015 to allow us to notify you of any questions and answers we may receive.
