The Management and Operation of Hervey Road Playing Field tender

RBG Ref: SPS 1036 (Open Procedure)

Invitation to tender 

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is tendering a contract to provide a service to establish a partnership with an economic operator to manage and operate Hervey Road Playing Field (site). The Council is open to considering an approach by which there is more than one delivery partner involved with the operation of Hervey Road.

The Council will provide a new high quality building to provide sports facilities at the site by May 2016. It is the ambition of the council to bring the playing field back into use and be fit for purpose. Consequently, capital funding of £995k has been secured for the restoration of the site. The restoration works will be carried out by the council prior to the preferred bidder being in operation.

The site will need to be self-sufficient as no subsidy will be given by the authority. However, the Council will be responsible for the project management and construction of the modular building, MUGA, car park and general field conditions and infrastructure.

The successful economic operator is required to manage a high quality, inclusive and accessible community sports facility for Royal Greenwich residents. The playing field will need to offer a wide range of sporting activities for all age ranges and abilities and improve opportunities for people to participate in sport and physical activity. The Council's preferred bidder will therefore, be required to manage the day-to-day operation of the site once the capital developments have been completed.

Using anticipated funding from the Royal Borough's own resources and Funders, Royal Greenwich is intending to develop a 30-year lease Agreement and SLA with the successful economic operator for the Management and Operation of Hervey Road Playing Field.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich has a strong strategic vision for the development of the playing field. In line with this, Royal Greenwich is seeking a 10-year business plan, suggested field layout proposals and appropriate method statements, as part of the submission for the site. The operation of the site must be self-sufficient; the council will not consider a subsidy position. However, a rent subsidy (peppercorn rent) will be available to organisations which meet set criteria.

The criteria used to evaluate a request for subsidised rent are that the organisation must meet the Council's service and/or strategic objectives and its aims must be in line with the Council's vision and values.
