Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
The Contracting Authority intends to enter into a conditional land sale agreement(s) with the most economically advantageous economic operator(s).
These shall be conditional upon the economic operator:
— Being able to provide clear, unencumbered title to the Contracting Authority (which contains no restrictive covenants or adverse rights which could impact development),
— Securing the Contracting Authority's approval for the detailed scheme, including a detailed specification ofworks,
— Securing full, detailed planning permission with no onerous conditions, to the satisfaction of the Contracting Authority, and which is not subject to challenge,
— Providing vacant possession of the whole of the site(s),
— Any environmental remedial works have been completed, if applicable, and independently verified by the Contracting Authority's own appointed expert to the Contracting Authority's satisfaction,
— Agreeing the final form of the design and build contracts,
— Providing documentary evidence from a third party (e.g. bank or accountant or such other third party as the Contracting Authority shall deem as equivalent) to demonstrate proof of development funding,
— Being able to provide appropriate and valid insurances, bonds and warranties commensurate to the scaleand complexity of the project, if applicable.
For the avoidance of doubt, the agreement for sale shall remain conditional upon the full satisfaction of each of the above specified conditions, unless any of them are waived at the absolute discretion of the Contracting Authority. The Economic Operator must work co-operatively with the Contracting Authority and use all reasonable endeavours to secure satisfaction of these conditions as soon as is reasonably possible. A target date for satisfaction of these conditions and a long stop date which would allow for termination should these conditions not be met, will be included in the agreement for sale.
Economic operators should note that all costs in securing satisfaction of these conditions will be borne by the Economic Operator and will be at the Economic Operator's own risk. No payments will be made by the Contracting Authority in advance of the agreement for sale becoming unconditional and the only cost attributable to the Contracting Authority in relation to the satisfaction of these conditions will be the amount payable for the site in question.
Economic operators should be aware that the Contracting Authority reserves the right to award more than one contract per Lot as a result of the procurement and to award contracts on a phased basis.
It is difficult for the Contracting Authority to estimate the value of this potential opportunity. The estimated valuefor each Lot is between 1 000 000 GBP and 50 000 000 GBP. It is also difficult for the Contracting Authority to estimate the duration of this opportunity. The estimated duration is 24 months from the date of contract signature to hand over of the site to the Contracting Authority. The values provided are estimates only.
