Thank you for your interest in Cranbrook Town Council’s invitation to tender for the design and build of a multi-use games area in Cranbrook.
Cranbrook in East Devon is a town which is being developed on a former green field site from scratch. Construction works started in 2011 and the first residents moved in during the following year. By early 2021, the town had grown to approximately 6,000 residents occupying around 2,500 properties. The current Local Plan which covers the period until 2031 makes provision for the delivery of circa 8,000 homes housing in the region of 25,000 residents – so Cranbrook will be at least a medium-sized town and probably the second-biggest settlement in East Devon.
A consortium of developers, the East Devon New Community Partners, are delivering the currently consented first 3,500 homes at Cranbrook in East Devon. The Section 106 agreement which accompanies that development stipulates the delivery of a multi-use games area of a size of 685 square metres which must comply in all respects with Sport England requirements. The wider site is subject to planning application 19/2675/MRES which is nearing consent and the attached a location plan indicates the location of the MUGA in the south-eastern extremity of the site.
Cranbrook Town Council is now looking to appoint a preferred supplier for the construction of a wheeled sports facility in a town centre location in Cranbrook as set out in the tender documents.
Any prospective supplier is invited to submit their design proposal(s) in accordance with the specification set out in the tender documents to the Town Council.
This opportunity is also advertised on the government’s Contracts Finder platform.
Please find all relevant documents below and please do not hesitate to contact Janine Gardner, Town Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer, if you have any questions or comments via
