Development agreements – avoiding procurement pitfalls
24th February 2016
Join us at our Newcastle office where legal experts Tim Care and Karen Andrews, along with special guest Richard Clayton QC (Kings Chambers), will discuss the impact of procurement law when considering your development and regeneration agreements.
It’s been almost a decade since the Roanne case first raised awareness of the pitfalls of not applying public procurement rules to development agreements. Only last year the Winchester City Council case further highlighted that failing to comply with the rules can have far reaching consequences.
So, do you understand your requirements? Join us at this session specifically tailored for local authorities where we will:
- discuss the factors that must be taken into account when determining whether or not a competitive procurement process should be adopted when planning a development with a third party developer
- highlight strategies that can be followed to minimise the risk of a challenge
- provide guidance on the practical application of public procurement law to development and regeneration agreements, including Section 106 agreements
- work through a number of case studies to help apply the law to day-to-day circumstances
There will be plenty of opportunities for audience participation and questions.
