Request for Quotation Yarramundi Reserve Restoration Project 2011-2012 Financial Year

Yarramundi Reserve is a large iconic reserve that has been classified as regionally significant. The management of this Reserve was handed over to Council in 2004 from Crown Land. Situated on the confluence of the Grose and Hawkesbury-Nepean Rivers it is approximately 62 ha of open space that harbours a range of recreational activities such as; kayaking, fishing, walking to name a few. This Reserve has also been identified to have significant environmental assets that require on going maintenance.

Hawkesbury City Council is seeking quotations for bush regeneration works for the 2011-12 financial year with a few to extend the contractors for a further 2 years, depending upon satisfactory completion of the previous year's project. This years current budget for the site is approximately $20 000. It must be kept in mind that this is a relatively small budget for the size of the reserve. Council will be sourcing funding opportunities for the duration of the project so budgets could fluctuate.

Submissions are requested for appropriate organisations to supply detailed quotations for this project.

Experienced bush regeneration companies need only apply. Experience in dealing with Hawkesbury specific vegetation communities is highly desirable.

A project brief must be obtained from Council's Land Management Officer, Nicola Booth on 4560 4531
Closing date for quotations: Close of Business Friday 8th September 2011.

Please note that the canvassing of Councillors in relation to this matter will automatically disqualify the applicant from this process.

For further information, please phone Council's Land Management Officer, Nicola Booth on 4560 4531.
