ALVECHURCH PARISH COUNCIL – FOOTWAY LIGHTING TENDER 

Introduction

 Alvechurch Parish is a semi-rural area of north Worcestershire, part of Bromsgrove district and immediately south of the City of Birmingham.  The Parish Council provides a range of local services to a population of over 5000, including managing around 140 footway lighting columns, mainly on residential streets.  A significant investment programme has been agreed to upgrade this lighting stock, with funding being planned from a Public Works Loan.  Concrete lighting columns are being completely replaced along with some older steel ones, and all lamp units are being standardised with environmentally-friendly LED units.

Project specifications and other tender documents are shown below, they are also available via the Government’s Contracts Finder Website.  A contract value of around £150,000 is anticipated and the relevant tender period extends from 20th September to 1st November 2021.  The Council expects funding arrangements to be finalised before the end of the calendar year and implementation is therefore planned during the first 6 months of 2022.

The Council is looking to balance overall cost, quality of materials and delivery timescales.  All tenders will be formally evaluated using pre-set criteria.  Prospective suppliers must be able to demonstrate an ability to work within the above parameters and prove successful implementations of a similar size and scale.  An ongoing maintenance contract for the new lighting stock may form part of the final contract award.

Good footway lighting is a key community priority for safety and security reasons.  The Parish Council is committed to delivering this major investment project to meet local needs.

Tender submission deadline – Midday on 1st November 2021
