Vendors sought for beaches and parks
Proposals to run concessions at beaches and national parks across the island over the summer are now being accepted, the Department of Parks has said.
Craig Burt, the parks officer, said: “The scope of the parks and beaches is limited as per the Bermuda National Parks Act 1986, as are the size designations and the locations.”
He added: “These are small mobile vending operations and selection will be based on the proposal, experience, references and previous history with the department.”
Among the parks in line for concessions are Church Bay, Southampton, Elbow Beach, Paget, Government House Waterfront Park, Pembroke, Parson’s Road Park, Pembroke, Chaplin Bay, Warwick, and Warwick Long Bay.
Multiple spaces are also up for grabs at Admiralty House Park, Pembroke, John Smith’s Bay, Smith’s, Kindley Field Park, St George’s, and Horseshoe Bay, Southampton.
Mr Burt said the same locations were made available for concessionaires last year, even though not all spaces were used.
He added a decision had been made about concessions at Shelly Bay, which is why it was not included on the list.
He said: “We have had dialogue with one of the Shelly Bay Park MP’s on the matter and the superintendents have been instructed to perform some landscape works before the summer in order to spruce up the area and repair and install fences.”
Applicants can submit proposals for more than one of the locations, but only one location will be awarded per concessionaire.
Commercial activity application form and concession location maps can be collected at the Department of Parks main office at Global House, Reid Street, Hamilton. Proposals and the completed commercial activity application form should be hand-delivered to the reception desk at the department’s main office by 3pm on March 15.
