Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


For the Assistant Director for Housing to award the Contract for the ‘Reynardson Court’ design commission to ‘Haworth Tompkins’ for design consultancy services up to RIBA Stage 2+. The sum of the Contract is £141,222

Reasons for the decision:

To appoint a high quality multi-disciplinary design team to deliver the maximum number of Council rented homes on the Council owned site. The project will contribute positively to the regeneration of Tottenham, improving the image and perception of the High Road, generating increased footfall, and delivering a more attractive and vibrant town centre.

Alternative options considered:

An alternative option would be not to proceed with the commission, but this not recommended as this would not support the agreed objectives of maximising the site’s use, delivering new Council homes and contributing to the physical, social and economic regeneration of the area.
