District invites tender for legal services on its “biggest project for decades”

Chichester District Council is inviting organisations to tender for the provision of legal services for a major development site in the city.

The Southern Gateway has been described as “the biggest regeneration project that the city has seen for decades”.

A masterplan was adopted by councillors last November. The council has said the project will involve transforming a 30-acre brownfield area "into a vibrant and attractive new quarter", eventually featuring:

  • new homes
  • business and retail space
  • leisure and tourism facilities;
  • improved transport links and a focus on cycling, walking and public transport, plus
  • public space enhancements and landscaping.

At the moment, the site includes several parcels of land:

  • the bus station and depot
  • Basin Road car park
  • law courts
  • part of the former Chichester Police Station playing field
  • part of the former high school, and
  • the Royal Mail depot buildings.

The closing date is 25 April 2018. The contract is expected to start on 18 June 2018 and run until 17 June 2020.
