Coastal Zone Maintenance Contract

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


A report was presented to Cabinet proposing the tendering of a 3 year (with 2 year extension option) term maintenance contract for coastal zone maintenance. This will replace an existing contract which naturally expires in January 2024. Coastal zone maintenance is revenue funded and the contract will have a value of up to £1.5m over the full 5 year maximum term.


Cabinet approved expenditure via a coastal zone maintenance term contract of approximately £1.5m over a 5 year period starting early in 2024.

Reasons for the decision:

To ensure the maintenance of coastal assets is undertaken.

Alternative options considered:

Not entering into a new contract for coastal zone maintenance would lead to a steady decline in the condition of coastal assets and increased insurance liability.
