This report seeks approval to award a 12-month contract to Alban LLP for provision of Development Management Consultancy services for the High Road West Regeneration Scheme, for the sum of £107,250.00, in accordance with Contract Standing Order 8.03.

Reasons for the decision:

The Council does not currently have the inhouse resources to deliver the Development Management expertise required to support the High Road West Regeneration Scheme. Therefore, in accordance with CSO 8.03, a competitive procurement was undertaken to obtain an experienced consultant to fulfil this requirement. Alban LLP submitted the most economically advantageous tender and therefore it is recommended that the contract be awarded to them.

Alternative options considered:

Not taking this action would represent a substantial risk to the delivery of the scheme, including financial, legal and programme risks
