OD/16/06 Appointment of Consultants to Prepare Non-Statutory Suffolk Strategic Planning and Infrastructure Framework (SPIF)

The Borough is acting on behalf of the Suffolk Local Authorities to procure a contract for the preparation by consultants of a non-statutory Suffolk-wide Strategic Planning and Infrastructure Framework.


The contract will be fully funded through the SCC Transformation Challenge Award (TCA) and will be administered by the TCA Board.  The cost of the contract will be likely to be up to £300,000.  It is hoped that the contract will be let in August and a SPIF prepared by April next year.  A Members Working Group chaired by Councillor Ellesmere has approved the draft contract.
