Through the procurement process for a development partner, the councils are looking for an organisation or a consortium of developers and investors who have a solid track record in place making and infrastructure to deliver this large scale residential project.
The councils need a partner who has both financial and resource capacity to work with them and commit for the longevity of this exciting project.
A prior information notice (PIN) was issued in May 2016 announcing the search for a partner to develop Manydown. The formal stages of procurement started in July 2016.
Further information will be available here once the process is complete.
“Basingstoke is an ambitious place that is growing and changing and welcomes new investment in its success. Our two councils are working together, drawing on our joint strengths as public bodies dedicated to and co-investing in our vision for a ground-breaking development on land in our ownership. We’re looking for an experienced partner to bring their expertise in placemaking coupled with enthusiasm to help realise our forward-thinking plans to make Manydown a vibrant, successful community and an amazing place for people to live.”
“As joint landowners with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, we are committed to the future of Manydown – working with the selected partner to deliver this unique project for Hampshire. We see this as a key site, and a major opportunity that will reflect the great character of Hampshire as a place to live, work and prosper.”
