The Foundation for Common Land and its partners in the Our Common Cause Project wish to appoint a consultant or team of consultants to investigate the opportunities for innovative peatland and wetland stabilisation and restoration on selected commons in the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Dartmoor, to assess the practical implications to farm management and make recommendations about the most cost effective approaches and methods that require further trialling. In particular, the consultants will carry out some research into the frequency of liver fluke, bog asphodel and saut, and other health concerns for livestock associated with wet ground.
The findings of the research will need to be collated and analysed, in collaboration with the project team, and developed into a costed proposal with project specifications, defined outputs, and accounting for existing or alternative funding streams for the work which OCC might be able to match.
