Barnsley Council is seeking to procure a Framework of Land Advisers/Brokers to assist in generating capital and maximising the value of land for the benefit of the public and charitable sector and/or developing surplus land assets with the aim of delivering social infrastructure or other public policy objectives.

 

The Framework will comprise two lots:-

Lot 1 – Land Brokers

  • who will normally provide the Client with support and advice at financial risk during the project development phases (from RIBA Stages 1 up to 4), with payment for services being realised and paid through the proceeds of the proposed land sale.

Lot 2 – Land Advisers

    • to provide advice to the Client on the development of surplus assets including: appraisal of development opportunities to determine commercial viability and deliverability; strategic options analyses; planning assessments; due diligence and surveys; and general advice and support throughout the project lifecycle. The Land Advisers are not required to work at financial risk.

The Broker Framework will be available for use by or on behalf of public and charitable sector organisations who will identify land assets for broker services with the aim of generating capital and maximising the value of land for the benefit of the public and charitable sector and/or developing these assets for social infrastructure or other public policy objectives. The Framework across both Lots will be used to deliver support and advice to Clients during project development phases (from RIBA Stages 1 up to 4) and may also be used to provide services during and post the construction phase including acting as the Client’s agent and ensuring that the project is built out in accordance with the agreed specification, programme and outcomes.

Land Brokers under Lot 1 will deliver these services throughout the project lifecycle, normally taking full financial risk on the project after an exclusivity arrangement has been entered into with the Client.

Land Advisers under Lot 2 will deliver services by way of lump sum fees or time charge commissions and will not take any financial risk. It is anticipated that Lot 1 call-offs will involve a longer term partnership between the Client and the Land Broker, whereas Lot 2 call-offs will be shorter term engagements to provide specific pieces of advice during the project lifecycle, with a focus on the early stage viability assessments.

Land Brokers and Advisers will be required to make an initial assessment of opportunity arising from the public asset. This assessment would involve looking at options for assembly and development, most likely to RIBA 1 but with surveys, planning advice and soft market testing to determine commercial viability and deliverability both within the context of local and national policy expectations and also the constraints that would be imposed by the prevailing development, finance and construction markets. Further to initial viability assessments, Land Brokers and Advisers will then carry out detailed project scoping, concept design and due diligence, detailed design and planning preparation, planning and contracts up to start on site. Land Brokers and Advisers may also be retained by the Client to provide services during and post the construction phase including acting as the Client’s agent and ensuring that the project is built out in accordance with the agreed specification, programme and outcomes.

Land Brokers and Advisers will need to be able to demonstrate their understanding of the technical and commercial requirements of this role and also their experience in responding within the context of local and central government policy. This will include the need to demonstrate relevant stakeholder management skills; an ability to help clients identify, maximise and realise policy and commercial benefits; to advise on procurement matters and risk management; and experience in working on projects that have delivered tangible social infrastructure and social benefits. Experience in key infrastructure areas will also need to be demonstrated, for example, Health, Care, Education or Housing.

Land Brokers under Lot 1 will also need to demonstrate experience and track record in the timely negotiation and delivery of land sale and development agreements showing how they have previously delivered wrapped solutions to deliver public sector requirements at risk.
