Description:
Corby Borough Council has funding from its own resources and from the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) under their Affordable Housing Programme 2015-18, to deliver 50 new council homes for affordable rent. The deadline for completion of the works is 15th December 2017. u As the Council does not currently have any suitable sites to deliver a development of this size within the permitted time scales, an OJEU Prior Information Notice was posted last summer to test the market within the Borough. u The authority now wishes to contract with a land owning residential developer to deliver a mixed tenure site (or a collection of smaller sites) within the borough, suitable for council homes and this Single-Stage Fixed Lump Sum Tender has been prepared in response to representations received. u Combined with the authority\u2019s own capital budget allocation of GBP5.75m, the HCA Funding of GBP1.5m gives an overall Scheme Budget of GBP7.25m to deliver these homes, as per the HCA Funding Agreement and the specification in this tender. The Council will retain GBP0.2m to cover internal fees, leaving GBP7.05m for the housing specified in this tender. u The HCA Funding Agreement requires that these 50 new affordable homes are exempt from any Section 106 Planning Contributions and as such, the developer will need to establish the implications of this within their overall development. u Given the lack of Stamp Duty Land Tax (due to partial government funding) the authority would be willing to either \u2013 u A) purchase the land (subject to terms & planning permission) and appoint the developer under a design & build u contract to build the Scheme u OR u B) enter into a developer agreement to bulk purchase the completed freehold dwellings that have been designed & built to order for CBC by the developer, including by agreement, any associated communal land / facilities. The Developer should make their preference known within their tender submission. u Bidders should consult the tender documents which contain full details of the requirements and of the arrangements surrounding this procurement. u Please see the Specification for further details. u Please see Contracts Finder advert for the documents: u https://www.contractsfinder.service.gov.uk/Notice/f77063d7-f484-45ec-a21c-a1831af791ea ,  ,
