Homes England, the government's housing delivery agency, has selected GRAHAM as one of 66 preferred partners on its new Delivery Partner Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).
The £20bn procurement framework is the biggest DPS of its kind and will replace the agency’s previous Delivery Partner Panel 3 (DPP3), making it easier for housebuilders and developers of all sizes to apply to join the preferred list of partners, by giving them option to join at any time.
As one of the largest vendors of residential land, this is a significant step to making sites for development more widely accessible. From now on, the DPS will be one of Homes England’s main routes for land disposal, giving those on the list the opportunity to bid for sites. Other public bodies may also use the DPS to procure developers, increasing housebuilders exposure to potential projects.
Rob Joyce, GRAHAM’S Development Director said:
“This framework will play a significant role in helping to deliver the homes that our country needs and we’re proud to be part of a strong line up of housebuilders that will deliver them over time. It will simplify the procurement process in a significant way, making it easier for housebuilders to bid for sites of interest and local authorities and housing associations to build on their land.”
The government's housing delivery agency is planning to issue expressions of interest via the DPS in the coming months for a number of sites including a 14-acre site in Burgess Hill that will support the delivery of up to 350 homes and a site located in Cradley Heath, Dudley that has planning permission for 89 homes.
