Waikato Regional Council (Council) invites your organisation for Plant Supply, Planting and Maintenance 2021-2024 for Upper Waiomou Habitat Enhancement Project. The project builds upon work carried out under the Upper Waihou Riparian Strategy since 2012 and connects to the ‘Restore Nature, Connecting Communities’ programme for the Waihou River which aims to create ecological corridors from the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park to the Firth of Thames. This restoration project is expected to be completed in four (4) years.
The project key activities to be carried out over the four-year period within the project area are:
• 128,000 native plants planted and plant releasing;
• Restoration of riparian margin along the Waiomou, Rapurapu and Tukutāpere Streams;
• Enhancement of natural biodiversity along the project area streams;
• Connecting a green corridor from the upper Kaimai Mamaku forested catchment and
• Improving natural habitat for native species.
Please refer to the Request for Proposal for the detailed requirements.
In response to COVID-19, the Government called for ‘shovel ready’ infrastructure and environmental restoration projects to stimulate the construction and environmental industries and economy, be of public or regional benefit, and create jobs. This project is part of the Shovel Ready programme of work and is therefore an opportunity to be part of Council’s Covid Recovery response.
Tenders close at 5:00pm on Friday 15 October 2021 and must be submitted electronically via GETS.
