It had previously been agreed to commission a masterplan for this area and the reports sought to award the contract following a procurement exercise. 3 tender submissions had been received and evaluated.
Consideration was given to:
· The budget for the work up to £143,000 had been set and included all such studies and reported required to update the evidence base as well as the masterplan.
· The planning permission already granted on Area A and that the work on Area B would complement the work that had already taken place.
