Abstract: NRW Marine Licensing Team are currently tendering for the provision of specialist technical advice on the impacts to the environment from marine licence applications. Whilst NRW hosts a number of environmental specialists, there are a number of reasons for NRW MLT to seek additional technical services. Primarily, advice is required in specialist areas outside of the remit of NRW specialists. Alternatively, NRW MLT may require advice within a short timescale beyond the resource capacity available within NRW at the given time.
This framework also covers the provision of sampling plans and analysis associated with applications for dredge-disposal applications and water quality modelling advice. NRW may require these services on main rivers as well.
