tender opportunity with Walsall Council
Outdoor Pursuits Partnering Soft Market Test
Walsall

Walsall Council would like to explore interest in partnering with another operator to expand and develop the delivery of outdoor pursuits activities from its two centres:

1) Aldridge Airport Outdoor Pursuits Centre: dry side centre with facilities including high and low ropes courses, climbing and abseiling wall, wheelchair ropes course and abseiling wall, with associated changing and classroom.

2) Sneyd Water Activity Centre: lake with associated changing equipment and storage for a range of water-based activities including canoeing, kayaking, sailing windsurfing and power-boating.

The existing in-house service focuses on curriculum-time delivery to mainstream and special schools during term-time, and some holiday schemes. This delivery creates significant periods where the centres are idle. The Council is initially looking to explore the opportunity to partner with another operator to make better use of the centres during these idle times: evenings, weekends and school holidays.

The council are keen to talk to experienced providers with a previous track record of delivering services such as these.

This advert has been issued by the Council to assess the market available for the service described above and to determine whether there is a sufficient market to require a competitive procurement process to be carried out.

Please register your interest by Wednesday 28th June at 5pm.

For an informal discussion please contact Paul Wicker on paul.wicker@walsall.gov.uk
