This report sets out the tender process to procure a construction contractor to deliver the new social housing on sites at Stoners Close, Wheelers Close and Glebe Drive.

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report by the Head of Housing setting out the tender process to procure a construction contractor to deliver the new social housing on sites at Stoners Close, Wheelers Close and Glebe Drive.

 

The Head of Housing advised Members that the team had been working on this project constantly, but the processes of procurement, identifying the criteria at all sites and especially planning considerations had taken many months. Now that initial work had taken place, there is a clear timetable and things should be able to move quickly.

 

Members were advised that the Expression of Interest process had yielded a number of responses, so there was confidence that there would be interested parties submitting tenders.

 

RESOLVED: That the Board noted the process to procure a construction contractor using the National Framework Partnership.
