Section II: Object
Provision of fifty (50) affordable council homes.
Corby Borough Council has funding from its own resources and from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) under their Affordable Housing Programme 2015-18 to deliver 50 new council homes for affordable rent. The deadline for completion of the works is 15.12.2017.
As the Council does not currently have any suitable sites to deliver a development of this size within the permitted time scales, an OJEU Prior Information Notice was posted last summer to test the market within the Borough.
The authority now wishes to contract with a land owning residential developer to deliver a mixed tenure site (or a collection of smaller sites) within the borough, suitable for council homes and this Single-Stage Fixed Lump Sum Tender has been prepared in response to representations received.
Combined with the authority's own capital budget allocation of 5 750 000 GBP, the HCA Funding of 1 500 000 GBP gives an overall Scheme Budget of 7 250 000 GBP to deliver these homes.
