The Homes and Communities Agency has started the hunt for housing developers and development consortia to join its next generation delivery partner panel.

This new panel replaces the existing framework of firm put in place two years ago and opened the door to several contractors get involved in housing delivery.

It proved a major success being used by both the HCA and over 100 partners to procure 24,000 homes across 111 sites.

It has been speculated that Deliver Partner Panel 2 will be more developer heavy. It will be split into four geographical lots rather than the three on the existing panel.

The number of firms on each region will rise from 17 to 25 in anticipation of the amount of public land expected to be released by central Government departments.

The Greater London Authority will also procure a panel for London that will run alongside the HCA’s DPP2.

Richard Hill, deputy chief executive at the HCA, said: “Bringing forward more land for development and speeding up the rate at which it is made available is a priority for Government and our current delivery partner panel has become a key part of our enabling offer to local authorities and other public sector partners.

“Going forward we will be looking for financially robust organisations that can demonstrate delivery in the current market, strong local relationships and a good knowledge of local conditions.”

DPP2 will cover the procurement of housing led development.  Commercial or commercially led sites will be handled by a different panel due to go out to bid at the end of the year.

Developers appointed to the DPP2 will be expected to cover all areas of housing development.

This will include raising of development finance, obtaining planning permission, supply chain management, design and construction of houses, sales and marketing of houses, aftercare and maintenance.

The official OJEU procurement notice for DDP2 will be available to view online from Friday.
