Section II: Object
Procurement of a Development Partner for Holborn, South Shields.
South Tyneside Council has applied for Enterprise Zone status at Holborn, South Shields and is seeking a Development Partner to deliver (amongst other requirements):
(a) masterplanning, and design and build services;
(b) over 200 000 ft² of Grade A office accommodation
(c) residential accommodation, and
(d) such other development as agreed with the Council in due course
(together known as the Council's Initial Requirements).
The Council is looking to enter into a 10 year (with the option to extend for up to a further 2 years) Development Agreement (DA) that will allow the parties to work together in order to deliver the Council's Initial Requirements; which will be subject to flexibility and change as agreed through the project approval process in the DA.
The Council is looking to create an excellent platform to promote development and has:
(i) prepared a Land Acquisition Strategy, and a Remediation and Enabling Plan (that will involve a separate procurement exercise conducted by the Council to select a remediation contractor) in order to prepare the sites for re-development in 2019;
(ii) applied for grant funding, and may support its selected partner through prudential borrowing and/or taking head-leases of properties and delivering the Council (and wider public sector) accommodation agenda.
Under this contract the successful organisation and potentially its supply chain will be required to actively participate in the achievement of social, economic and environmental regeneration of the locality of and surrounding the place of delivery of the contract. Accordingly, contract performance conditions may relate in particular to social, economic and environmental considerations.
