ITT for Sinker’s Fields Civil Engineering Works

May 19, 2021

NOTE: Please note that this post contains links to external websites.

Shropshire Wildlife Trust have issued an Invitation to Tender for civil engineering works on land adjacent to Whixall Moss, part of the Marches Mosses. The aim is to ensure that shallow surface water conditions can be consistently maintained across parts of the site during the spring and summer periods. This will provide habitat favourable for waders and wildfowl, aid the development of wetland vegetation and improve Carbon storage.

Historically, the land formed as shallow peat bog at the edge of Whixall Moss and peat soils remain, meaning this is an important marginal habitat for the Mosses. This type of marginal habitat has been eliminated from almost all British raised bogs, making this an opportunity for restoration of considerable importance.

Bids are due by 28th June 2021. All tender responses MUST be returned by email to Dr Alexandros Tsavdaris at, with Helen Trotman( copied in. HARD COPIES WILL NOTBE ACCEPTED. Please note that late submissions will not be accepted.
