As climbers know all too well - many of our crags are becoming increasingly overgrown, tree covered and difficult to access. As a result, the BMC is looking to commission an important piece of work to raise awareness of the importance of cliffs for recreation and the benefits of active woodland management.
Recent case study evidence from sites such as Dovedale, Cheddar Gorge, High Rocks and Tremadog have shown that the sensitive management of trees and vegetation can improve both the amenity and landscape value of cliffs, and their ecology value as wildlife habitats.
The BMC is producing a publication - aimed at landowners and countryside organisations - to help promote the good work that has been undertaken at sites around the country and explain how the BMC can contribute to new woodland/vegetation management projects in terms of direct funding and the provision of local volunteer support. The publication will be produced over the winter months and will be available in March 2007.
If you are interested in applying for this contract please download the project specification. The closing date for the submission of expressions of interest is 5pm, Friday 24th November.
