Maintenance of Pagham Harbour Local Nature Reserve

Pagham Harbour Local Nature Reserve (PHLNR) receives over 200,000 visits per annum and is an internationally important site for wildlife as well as an important amenity for local communities. The County Council has a statutory duty to ensure PHLNR is maintained as a protected environment.

 

On 1 February 2012, the County Council entered into a 99-year lease with the RSPB and a Service Level Agreement for maintenance services.

 

The current Service Level Agreement with the RSPB expires on 31 January 2022. The Director of Highways, Transport and Planning will be asked to award a replacement Service Contract commencing on 1 February 2022 for a period of 5 years, with the option to extend for a further 5 years.
