Description

South Derbyshire District Council is looking to procure the services of a suitably qualified and experienced contractor to undertake a survey of private sector housing stock.

Within the district of South Derbyshire there are approximately 35,300 private sector dwellings. It is proposed to undertake a survey of a sample of 1,000 randomly selected properties. This survey information is required to support both the Council’s strategic planning and its work with partner agencies.
The key objectives of the survey are to:

• improve knowledge on the general condition of the private sector housing stock within the District;
• identify the number, location and distribution of non-decent homes within the District;
• assess the extent to which the Council may need to exercise its powers in relation to private sector housing;
• gather information on the energy-efficiency rating of dwellings within the District; and
• gather information on the type and occurrence of dwellings with Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) hazards (Bands A-\D) together with the social, economic and health characteristics of occupants.

The successful contractor will be required to provide a sufficient number of suitably qualified surveyors to complete the survey and to analyse the results within the timescales set by the Council. The fieldwork is expected to take place during September 2013 with a preliminary report of initial findings by the end of October 2013 and a full and final report, and handover of all data, by the end of November 2013.

The contract, which is expected to start in early September 2013, will be for a period of three months.
