The Council is seeking to engage a suitably qualified and experienced agent to progress the development of new build council housing. The Council has identified five potential sites for residential development to be let at an affordable rent (as defined by the Homes and Communities Agency). The sites have been initially assessed, by the Council and an independent surveyor, as being suitable for development with some constraints identified. The Council’s planning service has also provided an initial estimate of the number of units (houses only) that may be accommodated on site. However, this is subject to change pending the outcome of the feasibility and design stages which will aim to maximise density and rental income whilst also taking account of the Council’s housing needs and planning policy requirements.
