Post Office Redevelopment

The Post Office project was advertised for tender in April 21 (OJEU). Following the successful planning application for the scheme, and Cabinet approval January 2021. The returned tenders were over budget, as such, it was approved to enter into a pre-construction service agreement (PCSA) to fully design and open book procure the project with the lowest most advantageous tenderer. The PCSA period is now coming to an end and recommendations will be laid out in the Cabinet report.


This project will result in the following:

Demolition of existing buildings;

Construction of two new buildings containing ground floor lettable spaces and residential units above (10no. in the front building and 18no. in the rear building); and

Public Realm space between the new buildings.

Cabinet approval is required to approve the additional proposed budget following this detailed PCSA period.
