Lancashire County Council ("the County Council") is seeking to procure two Regeneration Property Partners ("RPP") each of which will join with the County Council in working with the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership and the Lancashire organisations to deliver comprehensive regeneration across Lancashire through the structured development of public sector assets.
Each RPP will, through working in partnership with the County Council, the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership and the Lancashire Organisations, deliver asset management, master planning services for the whole of the public sector estate in Lancashire, with the overriding aim of promoting the economic regeneration of Lancashire. This may lead to a series of local asset backed vehicles with the County Council, and/or Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, and/or one or more of the Lancashire organisations for the redevelopment of relevant assets where appropriate.
It is intended that each of the RPPs will be capable of embracing public assets which belong to other central and local public sector bodies, such as Blackburn with Darwen Council, Blackpool Council, Burnley Borough Council, Chorley Borough Council, Fylde Borough Council, Hyndburn Borough Council, Lancaster City Council, Pendle Borough Council, Preston City Council, Ribble Valley Borough Council, Rossendale Borough Council, South Ribble Borough Council, West Lancashire Borough Council, Wyre Borough Council, Lancashire Police Authority, Lancashire Combined Fire Authority, University of Central Lancashire, Lancaster University, Edge Hill University, Further Education Colleges Department of Work and Pensions, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Defence, the Homes and Communities Agency, NHS and other public sector bodies and any company in which the County Council and/or any of these organisations has an interest in, as well as any successors of these organisations ("the Lancashire Organisations"). However the County Council does not guarantee the involvement of any of the Lancashire organisations.
The opportunity is a major regeneration and development project to utilise the County Council's and the Lancashire organisations' assets. The County Council, the Local Enterprise Partnership and the local organisations are looking for RPPs to work up development proposals which may include new (or improvements to) office and business developments; retail and leisure developments; housing and residential accommodation; hotel developments; car parking; infrastructure; community facilities; tourist attractions; and public spaces (and incidental or related works to these developments). The opportunity involves development opportunities delivered through joint ventures with potential returns from third parties, the County Council, and/or the Lancashire Organisations. In some instances, the County Council envisages the RPPs identifying opportunities for immediate disposal of an asset without the need for any development work.
The RPPs will undertake development activity and provide services to the County Council and its public sector partners, including (but not limited to) master planning; strategic development consultancy advice; environmental consultancy advice; technical and building services; architectural design; urban design and landscaping; physical construction and development; asset management services; leisure management services; facilities management services; marketing and disposal of development assets as well as undeveloped assets; and potentially land assembly.
In order to deliver these key objectives, strategic partnering agreements will be established for each RPP for terms of 10 years (with the ability to extend for a further 10 years in 2 increments of 5 years each). Once projects have been approved in accordance with the Strategic partnering agreement the parties will agree the most appropriate mechanism to deliver the project which may involve entering into corporate joint ventures (expected to be a local asset backed vehicle ("the LABVs")).
Further details (including details of the possible sites which may be developed through the partnerships) are contained in the descriptive document and pre-qualification questionnaire (see Section VI.3 (additional information) for details of how to obtain these).
