Development of former Swimming Pool Site, Sansome Walk , Worcester

Worcester City Council are bringing to the market an excellent opportunity for prime residential development in the heart of Worcester City Centre and are looking for a developer partner to deliver an early redevelopment of the site for a high quality residential scheme. The whole of the site is in the Council's freehold ownership and extends to approx 0.9ha comprising of the former public swimming pool and car park at Sansome Walk (the "Site") which closed at the end of December 2016 following relocation to a new swimming pool and leisure centre at Perdiswell. The Site is therefore now surplus to requirements and the Council are looking to appoint a developer who submits an attractive and deliverable proposal and who is committed to working with the Council in a true partnership style to manage risk and reward and whose proposed scheme is sensitive to the location of the Site and the community's interest in it. The Council expects this scheme to achieve a balanced delivery of a number of objectives around social housing, sustainability and quality design. The Council also expects a financial return from the development. The site is currently vacant and is allocated for residential development in the South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP). The Council wish to ensure that the development fulfils the Site's potential for sustainable town centre housing. The Council is procuring the demolition of the existing buildings on the Site at its own cost with some grant assistance from the One Public Estate Land Release Fund. Site investigations have shown that some ground remediation will be necessary to deal with buried asbestos containing materials (ACMs)and other contamination. A remediation strategy ("Remediation Strategy") has been prepared and the Site is being offered on a "cleared and clean" basis. Please see the full set of Procurement documents for further information. The Council are using the e-procurement portal known as the Proactis Pro-Contract portal to conduct this procurement exercise. To gain access to the procurement documents, bidders will need to register their company details at the above website. Once registered, bidders will be emailed a log-in and password which will allow them to gain access to the procurement documents. Bidders will need to search for the invitation under Worcester City Council and then electronically submit an expression of interest and follow the online instructions to view the procurement documents.
