II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Council is procuring a development partner to deliver a substantial mixed use regeneration opportunity in the heart of Chichester. The project seeks to transform an approximate 12 hectare site (largely brownfield) into a vibrant and exciting new quarter of exceptional quality.

A Masterplan for the area was adopted in November 2017 as a supplementary planning document. Enjoying widespread political and community support, it provides a flexible framework which is expected to deliver approximately:

— 365 homes, of which a minimum of 30 % are expected to be affordable,

— new jobs associated with the envisaged 21 600 m2 of mixed commercial space including extensive retail, office, hotel, leisure, entertainment, visitor, and night time economy opportunities; potentially to include a proposed new community health facility, subject to confirmation and funding from the local health bodies,

— landscaping and public space enhancements,

— improved transport links removing non-essential traffic from the area with an emphasis on walking, cycling and public transport, and

— improvements to highways and services infrastructure, including waste water treatment.

The adopted Masterplan is available at https://in-tendhost.co.uk/sesharedservices/aspx/Home

The Council recommends that bidders familiarize themselves with the Masterplan, which was developed through a collaborative approach between West Sussex County Council and Chichester District Council. Both councils have entered a partnership, through the Chichester Place Plan and the subsequent Chichester Growth Deal, to deliver sustainable growth and provide opportunities for new homes and new commercial and retail floor space, preserving existing jobs and creating new ones. Additionally, Homes England may become a Stakeholder in the Southern Gateway Project and provide support in their strategic aim of delivering housing.

The development is expected to take place across a large site, currently in multiple occupation and ownership. Several of the buildings currently on the site are locally listed. The Council is in discussions with various parties with respect to incorporating their land into the site. Homes England may own a number of the parcels of land making up the site, or alternatively these may be acquired by the Council. The Chichester railway station will be a key public transport interchange within the area. The area offers opportunities for redevelopment but the operational requirements of Network Rail and the train operating company must be maintained. There are opportunities to develop the infrastructure within the site, including pedestrianizing areas (subject to use by public transport), improving public realm for cyclists and pedestrians, and realigning and modifying existing highways. Any new office space forming part of the design is expected to focus on the envisaged high growth, high value sectors identified in the C2C LEP Strategic Economic Plan.

The development partner will:

— support the Council to complete land assembly and relocations,

— design a high quality scheme in accordance with the Masterplan for the area and the Council's requirements,

— consider and advise on focused meanwhile uses,

— participate in consultation and obtaining planning permission,

— deliver infrastructure, including public realm, highways and transport,

— fund the scheme,

— develop the scheme,

— brand, promote and market the opportunity,

— ensure the long term stewardship and management of the completed development.
