The Council has identified three opportunity sites within this area, in the ownership of the Council and their public sector partners, and comprising a total of 2 453 ha (6.07 acres). Whilst these sites represent the currently envisaged opportunities, the Council would consider other innovative ways of delivering our objectives, including taking in adjoining land if it can be demonstrated that these solutions are deliverable.
The Council will be providing funds, up to a maximum target price, of circa 15 000 000 GBP for the delivery of the PSQ facility.
The Council has advanced the position with respect to land assembly with the other public sector land owners and is in detailed negotiations with the parties involved.
For example, heads of terms have been agreed with Hertfordshire County Council, whose Library Services and Registration, who will be located within the new PSQ facility, and whose land holding, together with the Council’s, is sufficient to accommodate the new PSQ facility.
The development partner will be required to deliver the PSQ facility against a number of project objectives that also include a range of minimum project requirements.
As well as the delivery of the PSQ, the development partner will also be expected to deliver a modern commercial leisure offer (such as cinema and food & beverage) and complementary regeneration comprising appropriate residential or commercial development.
Further information is provided in the Descriptive Document that is available from the address in Section I.1 above.
