  • Evaluation of bids

  • Discussion and clarification with bidders to ensure that appropriate bids are submitted

Following the advertisement and targeted mail out the site attracted interest from a number of parties who were encouraged to bid and any queries were addressed.  

Six initial compliant bids were received and then a seventh non-compliant bid was also submitted.  

It was necessary to request best and final bids and this resulted in six bids.  A preferred bidder was selected on the basis of price and track record.  A contract conditional on planning has been agreed.
