Homes England has selected GRAHAM Construction as one of its 66 preferred partners on its new Delivery Partner Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).
The £20 billion procurement framework is the biggest DPS of its kind and is set to replace the 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 the 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.
Rob Joyce, Development Director at GRAHAM, 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.”
Other public bodies may also use the DPS to procure developers, increasing housebuilders’ exposure to potential projects.
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.
