Wolverhampton City Council is looking for firms to sign up to a new housing development framework to speed up the delivery of new council homes and regeneration projects on sites across the city.
The four-year deal will be supported by £109m from the Housing Revenue Account budget, with further provision allowed for within the 30-year HRA business plan.
The council plans to open up the Housing Development Framework to other local authorities through an authorising agreement, generating a potential spend of up to £1bn, it said.
The framework will cover design, pre-construction services, construction and delivery of new homes and housing solutions across a full spectrum of tenures.
It will allow local contractors to apply to the framework to work in partnership with the council to deliver a pipeline of new homes in the medium to long term, supporting the Wolverhampton Pound and local economy.
