    Thetford Town Council (TTC) is looking for a tendered price to formalise the natural breach in the true left bank of the River Thet at Ford Meadow local to Nun’s Bridge, Thetford.

    The natural breach has created a by-pass channel that can function to improve fish passage and transfer between the River Little Ouse and downstream River Thet to upstream River Thet. The proposal is to create a barrage across the breach and install a notch to allow flow from the Thet into the channel.

    Plans have been designed by Fishtek (attached) and specified by the Environment Agency.  The tender price must cost the plans as designed by Fishtek.

    The tender submission must also cost a variation with no notch installed (complete barrier).


    Tender requirements


    • Written itemised tender price for the works.
    • Tenders should include a price for both with the notch and without the notch.
    • Copy of public liability insurance up to £10 million.
    • Copy of company Health and Safety Policy (If company has more than 5 employees).
    • Example method statement and example Risk Assessment.
    • Details of 2 references that can be contacted by the Council.
    • Tender’s environmental policy




    The evaluation will be undertaken by a panel of councillors and the Town Clerk and will be broken down into the following parts: 

    70% Price

    30% Quality score (meeting specification)

    TTC will assess how well each of the criteria, important for successful delivery of this contract, has been satisfied.  Please ensure the responses given are clear, concise and complete to ensure proper understanding.
