Please Note: This Notice is an indication only of potential future procurement activity and is subject to change. It is not part of any pre-qualification or selection process and is not a commitment to progress a procurement exercise.
Cornwall Council's Housing Development Programme aims to deliver 1 000 new homes over the period 2017-2022, within key towns in Cornwall. The Council is seeking to provide an affordable, secure alternative offer for those in the private rented sector, those in housing need, and for those that want to stay within their local community. The aim is to provide housing that is supported by the community for the community.
The Council would like to undertake a soft market assessment to identify and better understand the market opportunities for progressing this initiative through a Joint Venture (JV) arrangement.
Homes developed through the programme will include a range of tenures including properties for open market sale, and affordable homes to rent. The focus however is on market rental properties. Both affordable and private rented properties will require management and landlord services.
The Council would welcome responses from organisations who are interested in bringing development and commercial expertise, to work with the Council to increase housing delivery and meet the programme's wider Vision and Objectives.
