HCA appoints developers to new housing delivery panel



The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has appointed housing developers and contractors to its newly established Delivery Partner Panel 3 (DPP3).

The 70-member panel has been set up to assist in the delivery of residential-led developments on public sector land.

The panel will provide a Public Contract Regulations 2015 compliant procurement route for public sector organisations to appoint a developer or contractor.

Nick Walkley, HCA chief executive, said: “This autumn, the HCA will relaunch as Homes England with the ambition of creating a better housing market.

“We’re determined to get more homes built now and increase the rate of future development.

“So we hope as many local authorities and public bodies as possible use our improved Delivery Partner Panel to increase the pace of construction of new homes, while saving time, effort and costs.”

DPP3 is free of charge to a wide range of local authorities, government departments, NHS Trusts and educational establishments and will provide a pre-qualified list of housing developers.

The new panel is split into five regional lots: North East, Yorkshire and the Humber; North West; Midlands; East and South East; and South and South West.

A full list of members is available on the HCA website.

The HCA’s previous two partner panels have so far delivered over 43,500 homes, through 258 schemes over seven years.

The DPP3 will run from 31st July 2017 for a period of four years.
