The Land Trust is tendering for the landscape management contract for Silverdale Country Park and Hassall Green Nature Reserve, with a new contract starting from March 2024.
Silverdale Country Park is an approximately 83Ha area of green space created on the site of the former Silverdale Colliery near Newcastle-under-Lyme in North Staffordshire. It is a space for the community to enjoy and where nature can thrive. There is a focus on bringing people together and providing benefits to their daily lives in a way that is sensitive to the site’s cultural heritage and wildlife value.
Hassall Green Nature Reserve is a rural site on the Southern outskirts of Hassall Green village, approximately 2.2ha. Formerly a sand quarry, the site was used for land fill until the late 80’s and has now been fully remediated. The nature reserve is a haven for wildlife and managed as a closed site where local people can get close to nature through organised volunteering sessions and events.
The Managing Agent for the Land Trust will be the local eyes, ears and contact for the site on a day to day basis. They will have the following responsibilities:
The Managing Agent will be appointed through a 10 year Termed Management Agreement, which will be the subject of an annual review.
