11/09/2019 - New Town Hall Site Redevelopment: Letter of Intent Sign Off ref: 267    Recommendations Approved

The Town Hall Site Redevelopment has reached its next key milestone. The Council's Development Managers have issued a draft Tender Report following discussions and clarifications. Their recommendation is to issue the contractor with two Letters of Intent with a view to entering into contract to build both the New Town Hall and associated works, and the District Heat Network. This will allow design, procurement and preparatory works to be undertaken, contract documents to be prepared and final due diligence checks to take place whilst keeping the projects to programme ahead of any signing of contracts.
