Twenty five firms have been included on a list of “oven ready” development partners for regeneration of publicly owned land in London.
The framework covers housing-led mixed-use developments for the Greater London Authority. It will run alongside the Homes and Communities Agency’s Delivery Partner Panel 2.
The companies on the list will be able to bid for development opportunities on the 230 hectares of GLA land earmarked for development, along with opportunities from London Boroughs, government departments and so on.
The developers selected are Affinity Sutton Homes, Ardmore First Base Partnership, Barratt, Bellway Homes, Bouygues, Leadbitter Consortium, Carillion igloo and Genesis, Catalyst Housing, Countryside Properties, Family Mosaic & Mulalley, Galliford Try, Hadley Mace Holdings, Higgins Group, Kier, Lend Lease Europe Holdings, London & Quadrant Housing, Lovell Partnerships, Notting Hill Housing, Places for People Homes, Redrow Homes, Regenter, Rydon Construction, Taylor Wimpey, The Berkeley Group, Telford Homes, and Wates Construction.
The London Development Panel, set up with the support of London Councils, establishes a framework agreement between the developers involved that enables public land owners, including London’s boroughs and government bodies, to award individual contracts without having to go through a full and expensive procurement process.
It also offers the potential for developers to build now and pay later for land on some schemes procured through the panel, making schemes more viable and generating a better return to the public purse in the long term.
The panel is to be managed by the GLA, with Transport for London acting as procurement agent.
