Specialists have been appointed to three new frameworks which will enable procurement of up to £30m of professional technical services to support housing delivery
13 highly skilled technical specialists have been appointed to three national framework panels by Homes England to help prepare public sector land for housing across England.
A number of SMEs have been appointed to the frameworks. Their expertise will help increase the pace, scale and quality of development and accelerate delivery of new homes in areas of greatest demand.
Stephen Kinsella, executive director for land, at Homes England, said: “Specialists appointed to these frameworks bring with them a wealth of knowledge and technical expertise that will enhance the work of Homes England. This will help us meet our ambition to accelerate housebuilding and help to deliver the Government’s ambition of 300,000 new homes per year required to alleviate the shortage of new homes in England.”
The Asbestos and Land Survey will also be available to other public sector bodies and will form part of the suite of Homes England frameworks.

As part of this, Homes England aims to purchase land, release surplus public sector land and remediate brownfield sites, as well as fund and deliver primary infrastructure.
