EDC are seeking to secure an urban design team to co-develop a masterplan for the Ebbsfleet Central site. The scope of works will consist of:
The masterplan must be capable of securing a high-quality, outstanding mixed-use development which provides flexibility for innovation and changing circumstances as the development is delivered by the private sector over the next 15-20 years. This wide-ranging role will require significant collaboration with EDC teams and board members, a wide range of stakeholders, local communities, local authorities and the wider consultant team we are assembling for the Ebbsfleet Central site.
The form of the masterplan is envisaged to identify key spatial priority areas and strategic links which are essential to delivering a successful development. EDC do not wish to develop a detailed or prescriptive masterplan which could stifle future detailed area masterplans for the wider site and each phase of development. The masterplan should provide a framework of key design principles and opportunity areas, informing the maximum quantum of development and parameter plans and promoting future innovation and flexibility. EDC expect the final form of the masterplan to be developed with EDC and the consultant team.
The core services shall have an initial term of 18 months. The core services shall consist of the development of a masterplan and securing planning permission for Ebbsfleet Central. The estimated value for the core services is 300 000 GBP.
Subject to satisfactory receipt of planning permission and performance of the winning bidder, the contract may be extended on an annual basis to support the delivery of additional services, for a maximum period of 5 years. The estimated value of the additional services is 50 000 GBP per annum.
The initial contract term will be 18 months.
Subject to satisfactory receipt of planning permission and ongoing performance of the winning bidder, the contract will be extended on an annual basis, for a maximum period of 5 years.
