The interpretation project at Budle Bay will be the crowning glory of a cantilevered platform hovering over the southern tip of Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve.

The Peregrini Lindisfarne Landscape Partnership are seeking proposals from prospective contractors for the design and installation of interpretation for a new viewing platform at Budle Bay.

Budle Bay sits at the most southern point of the Peregrini Lindisfarne scheme area and the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve managed by Natural England. Here land and water meet with views across the saltmarsh and mudflats to Ross Sands. Holy Island sits to the north and shifting sands and tides combine to create a fascinating home to an array of wildlife.

A long layby adjacent to Budle Bay provides a unique position for visitors and the local community to experience spectacular views and an abundance of wildlife.

To improve the experience for visitors who use the lay-by a number of improvements have been identified including the construction of a viewing platform. The viewing platform will provide a refuge, a space where visitors can appreciate the views and the wildlife away from the busy road. It will be an unsupported 3m by 5m steel platform decked with a non-slip timber surface.

Closing date for submissions is 12noon on Tuesday 24th October 2017
