The Reasons are:

  • To progress housing delivery for Derive.
  • The approach is in line with the Council’s procurement rules.
  • To make the procurement process for pre-planning consultants more transparent and efficient.


Options considered and rejected were:

  • Submitting separate DDNs for every consultant for each site (as has been done for the Derive scheme at Robert Hall St/West Park St in Ordsall, which was inefficient).


Assessment of Risk: High


The source of funding is:

The schemes’ development costs are to be met by the Council’s own funding, through approved general unsupported borrowing, within the Pipeline Development capital programme for future delivery of housing schemes, expenditure code: A10122.


Legal Advice obtained: Yes.


Financial Advice obtained: Yes.


Procurement Advice obtained: Yes.
