Outstrays to Skeffling Market sounding exercise

The Environment Agency and Associated British Ports (ABP) are working in partnership to develop a scheme to provide new, compensatory intertidal habitat at Outstrays, Welwick and Skeffling. As part of this process, the Environment Agency is seeking to determine the interest in groups or organisations to undertake the future management of the Outstrays to Skeffling Managed Realignment site and the opportunity to influence aspects of the design.

The aims of this process are:

  • to give further information to interested groups/organisations about the project
  • to give groups/partners opportunity to help shape our approach of the management of the site. 
  • to help the Environment Agency determine if there is sufficient potential interest in bidding for the site management contract.

The closing date for responses is 13th April 2017.

The market sounding document and questionnaire can be downloaded from the link below.
