Section II: Object of the contract
NUTS code UKI21
The project land is positioned opposite a new Academy school (opening January 2013) and nearby Ponders End Park which has recently benefitted from £1 m of investment. The Council is currently consulting on an Area Action Plan for the area which will provide the planning framework for the site.
The total site area is 6 hectares and currently comprises 717 residential (547 tenanted / 170 leasehold) high-rise and low-rise properties and 12 commercial units. A recent consultation with residents of the estate has shown that approximately 80 % support redevelopment.
The Council is committed to the comprehensive demolition and rebuild of the site and has commenced the process of achieving vacant possession of all properties. The Council will meet the cost of vacant possession and will endeavour to repurchase properties via agreement but if required the Council will seek to obtain CPO powers to ensure that vacant possession can be provided to the appointed partner on a phased basis.
The partner will be required to lead on demolishing the vacant properties and replacement of the existing communal heating system. The development partner is also required to facilitate the reprovision of telecom installations which are expected to return as a lessee on the new development.
The Council is seeking a partner with the expertise, experience and vision to deliver the comprehensive redevelopment of the project land working in partnership with the Council. The preferred partner will need to have the capacity to deliver new homes, shops and facilities to successfully regenerate the area. The Council is also keen to work with a partner with experience of delivering local training and employment initiatives.
The Council is seeking to identify a partner that can (i) maximise the provision of new council homes for council tenants and (ii) develop and deliver proposals for the regeneration of the remainder of the site, including the reprovision of commercial space. The Council is open to proposals that include the delivery of additional affordable properties by registered providers.
The Council will adopt a flexible approach to deliver its regeneration objectives for the site. The Council welcomes innovative proposals from development partners, particularly where these proposals improve the viability and quality of the scheme. Proposals that include different uses, housing mixes and financial partnerships will all be considered.
Enfield Council has an excellent track record of delivering quick and efficient procurements that reduce costs for both sides. The intention is to appoint a partner via the competitive dialogue procedure. The Council’s current intention is that three bidders will be invited to enter into a dialogue with the Council. The current intention is that shortlisted bidders will only be required to submit one formal bid at an Invitation to Submit Detailed Solutions stage and one bid at the Invitation to submit Final Tender stage. The Council is aiming for a start on site to be achieved by July 2014.
