Wolverhampton City Council is looking for companies to join a new housing development framework to accelerate the delivery of new community housing and regeneration projects on sites across the city, reports Contract Journal.
The four-year deal will be supported by £109 million from the Housing Revenue Account budget, with additional provisions in the HRA’s 30-year business plan. The council intends to create an open consent agreement allowing other local authorities access to the Housing Development Framework and the potential £1 billion spent.
The framework consists of planning, pre-construction services, construction of new homes and housing solutions in all tenures. It will allow local contractors to apply for the framework to work with the council to deliver a medium to long-term portfolio of new homes, supporting Wolverhampton Pound and the local economy.
Framework for Wolverhampton Housing Development:
- Tasks on small sites of up to 3 Dwellings
- Tasks on sites from 4 up to 20 Dwellings
- Tasks on sites of over 21 Dwellings
