Appointment of consultants to provide commercial agency services for land in the City Centre
Decision Maker: Executive Director (Development)
Decision status: Recommendations approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: No
To award a contract for the provision of commercial agency services in relation to land in the City Centre.
The decision has been made to appoint JLL to undertake commercial agency services in relation to land in the City Centre.
Reasons for the decision:
The decision to appoint a consultant was made in order to enable work on commercial agency services, be a good landlord, and seek to sustain income from the site. The work is time critical so as to be able to progress good decision making on the site in advance of key lease expiry dates.
Alternative options considered:
The option of not procuring a consultant was rejected as it would not allow the Council to meet its objective of maximising income from the site.
Alternative routes to procuring a commercial agent were considered, but the use of Request for Quotes to known experienced contractors to procure a competent team to undertake the work was considered by the Head of Corporate Property and the project team to be the most expedient way to secure the consultants required.
Signed off by senior officers:
Decision taken by Tom Bridgman, Executive Director (Development) in consultation with Jane Winfield, Head of Corporate Property.
