Consultancy for a heritage project in Driffield, East Yorkshire

Deadline 4th January

A short-term consultancy opportunity is being offered by Driffield Town Council in East Yorkshire.

The contract is linked to a heritage re-development project which is in its earliest stages.

In 2016, the Grade II listed Mortimer’s Warehouse, which is located at the head of Driffield Navigation in East Yorkshire, was purchased by a local benefactor who would like to transform the building into a heritage visitor centre where the story of the canal can be told.

The owner has committed to working with Driffield Town Council and other local stakeholders to realise this shared ambition. Together, this public-private partnership would like to see Mortimer’s Warehouse become a community-focused heritage asset that is financially self-sustaining and an attractive part of the East Riding’s cultural and tourism offer. The transformed warehouse would also help to revitalise the River Head area in Driffield and bring something new and exciting to this market town.

Driffield Town Council and its partners have agreed that before any feasibility or physical works can be carried out on the warehouse, they need to establish a robust management board/legal entity that has an appropriate membership and strong governance, and the ability to acquire the powers and capacity needed to lead and develop this heritage transformation project.

Earlier this autumn, the Council applied to the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Resilient Heritage programme for support to help create this board/entity and were successful.

To this end, the partnership is now seeking an external and independent consultant who has experience in the charitable sector to help with this very important first step in what they expect will be a multi-year, multi-phase heritage project.

The contract, which has a maximum value of £3,500, exclusive of VAT, would begin in January 2019 and run through to the end of June 2019.

Please note that the partnership wishes to appoint a consultant as quickly as possible. The deadline for responding to this bid is Friday, 4 January 2019, at 09:00 and the date for interviews will be Tuesday, 8 January 2019, in Driffield.
