Overview

Background
1.1. There is unprecedented demand from beekeepers wanting to place hives on public land. Demand exceeds supply in many parts of the country, particularly for mānuka honey production sites.
1.2. Although opportunities for mānuka honey production within the Greater Wellington (GW) Parks and Forests are limited, there are opportunities for wintering on a large number of sites.
1.3. GW recognises the value of honey to the New Zealand and regional economy, and the potential benefit of using public land as a resource. It is also key the GW manages any risks this presents to the environment and other users, while also achieving market returns from this commercial use of council land.
1.4. Current beekeeping arrangements within these areas are all due to expire in early 2019. The purpose of this Request for Tender (RFT) is for GW to select beekeepers to carry out commercial beekeeping and locate his or her hives on the sites identified below. This document outlines the process and information for submitting a tender for beekeeping opportunities in the GW Metro Forests and Regional Parks.
