Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
It should be noted that IAMP LLP is in the process of applying for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to combine a grant of planning permission with other separate consents including rights to compulsorily purchase land.
In the meantime HBDL has submitted a hybrid planning application for the first phase of development at the IAMP ONE as follows:
— full planning permission for one industrial unit on Plot 3 (21 856 m2) (Gross Internal Area (GIA) for light industrial, general industrial and storage and distribution (Class B1(c), B2 and B8), with ancillary office and research and development floorspace (Class B1(a) and B1(b)) with associated access, parking, service yards and attenuation basins, as well as the temporary construction route, internal spine road, utility diversions, with 2 accesses onto the A1290 and associated infrastructure, earth works and landscaping, and
— outline planning permission for the erection of industrial units (134 984 m2) (GIA) for light industrial, general industrial and storage & distribution (Class B1(c), B2 and B8) with ancillary office and research and development floorspace (Class B1(a) and B1(b)) with internal accesses, parking, service yards, attenuation basins, electricity substations, foul pumping station, realignment of the access road to North Moor Farm and associated infrastructure, earthworks and landscaping. All matters are reserved for determination at a later stage. The planning application for IAMP ONE — Infrastructure is generally covered by the full planning application, however it is likely that parts of the works will only have outline planning consent by the time of contract award.
HBDL reserves the right at any time to:
i) reject any or all responses and to cancel or withdraw this procurement at any stage;
ii) award a contract without prior notice;
iii) change the basis, the procedures and the timescales set out or referred to within the procurement documents;
iv) require a bidder to clarify any submissions in writing and/or provide additional information (failure to respond adequately may result in disqualification);
