II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The project has an estimated total value of 2 200 000 000 GBP, with phase 1 having an approximate value of 880 000 000 GBP. The councils are seeking a joint venture partner to enter into a 50/50 joint venture vehicle (‘JV’). The selected JV partner will have the financial capability, technical resource and experience to deliver a new neighbourhood of the highest quality. The councils' aim is to incentivise its JV partner to take a long-term approach with strong placemaking at the heart of the delivery strategy. This approach will deliver a high quality new community, whilst also creating value and financial returns. The JV will be required to undertake or procure the provision of: — at least 3 200 (with a potential for this to be increased by 10 % up to 3 520) private and affordable dwellings in the first phase with the potential to develop a further 4 600 dwellings in future development phases, subject to satisfactory performance during Phase 1; — a new district centre and supporting local centres including an appropriate provision of commercial and community facilities to support the wider placemaking of Manydown; — a small provision of self-build units and a permanent, pitch/plot provision to meet identified accommodation needs of gypsies, travellers and travelling showpeople in the borough; — the provision of social and physical infrastructure (including the development of a road through the development), including community facilities, local shopping facilities, healthcare facilities and sports and leisure facilities including playing pitches; — the enabling of two primary schools and the safeguarding of land for a secondary school; — appropriate green space/green infrastructure including a country park; — infrastructure for sewerage on and off site and surface water drainage; and — development management services in relation to the land interests referred to above. In order to deliver these outcomes, the JV will, as a minimum, be required to undertake: — land acquisition and land assembly (in addition to disposal and transfer of land interests); — the construction and master planning design process; — development of both residential, commercial and community aspects of the site; — agreeing terms with existing owners of third party community land interests and other land interests (as necessary); — ongoing consultation, communication and negotiation with stakeholders, as required; — obtaining planning consents and negotiating and entering into planning and other related agreements; — commissioning construction phases and entering into appropriate construction contracts; — entering into development management contracts in relation to the site; — marketing and managing sales of those phases within the site which are deemed to be appropriate for sale by the JV and entering into any necessary sales agency contracts and consultancy contracts in accordance with the JV's procurement policy; — entering into legacy arrangements for the long term management and maintenance of the site; — identifying new opportunities for the JV and preparing feasibility reports and plans for any such opportunities; and — securing finance as necessary including any applicable public sector funding. It is envisaged that the councils will participate in the JV through a corporate special purpose vehicle (councils' SPV'). The councils intend to contribute certain land interests to the JV (subject to satisfaction of certain conditions).
