BLYTHE Valley Park-based Kier has been selected by the Homes & Communities Agency for all four of the lots on its new Delivery Partner Panel Framework (DPP2).
Worth up to £4bn in housing and associated development over the next four years, DPP2 is divided into four geographical lots covering most of England and will be used to speed the development of housing on land owned by the HCA and other public sector bodies. DPP2 will mainly cover the procurement of housing-led development. The aim of the panel is to make the procurement of a developer as quick and efficient as possible for both private sector panel members and public sector panel users. It will build on work already done through the HCA’s existing DPP, through which the HCA delivered over 24,000 homes between 2010 and 2013.
Kier Group chief executive Paul Sheffield commented: “This is a tremendous achievement for Kier and one that will play a significant role in our delivery of mixed tenure affordable housing for the next four years.
“We are able to offer national coverage and to respond to regeneration and mixed tenure opportunities as few others can.”
