Blackburn’s Rivers Important to Lancashire Landscape Investment and Natural Capital Economy – BRILLIaNCE – is a project that seeks to make physical improvements to the conservation status of the river habitats of the River Darwen (a major tributary of the River Ribble) and the River Roddlesworth.  It aims to do this by increasing the riverine habitat connectivity.  For this project, this specifically looks to create a new “close to nature” river channel and “rock ramp” on the River Roddlesworth that by-passes a culvert under the former Sappi Paper Mill site and enables fish to ascend a weir via a rock ramp.  This project is a partnership between Blackburn Waterside Regeneration and Ribble Rivers Trust (RRT), with funding from the partners and through the European Structural Infrastructure Fund.  Although this project is below the thresholds for a full procurement procedure under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 – RRT is still under and obligation to ensure compliance with EU principles of transparency, equality and non-discrimination, as such RRT is conducting a formal open tender process in which all bidders will be treated equally, with no discrimination and through a transparent process.
