Waikato Regional Council (Council) invites your organisation for Plant Supply, Planting and Maintenance 2021-2025 - Piako Green Corridor Request for Proposal.
The Piako Green Corridor is a riparian restoration project funded through the Central Government Jobs for Nature initiative. This project seeks to reconnect the Kopuatai wetland to the Firth of Thames, both of which are Ramsar Convention sites of international ecological significance.
This is a new project, but it builds on discussions with local iwi and other long-term planning and existing programmes run by Waikato Regional Council (Council). There is potential for this project to be extended over time to add further environmental value in the form of aquatic habitat, silt traps, constructed wetlands, longer term predator control and expanded planting to drainage networks Much of the work will be on council managed land.
The project activities relating to this contract are:
• Supply, and plant 238,820 Eco sourced native plants.
• Maintain these and a further 18,000 (planted June 2021) plants up until June 2025
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.
