To extend the Property Consultancy Services Contract as per the option to extend clauses within the contract


To extend the current Property Service consultants contract with Align Property Partners effective from 1st November 2021.

Reasons for the decision:

The Council currently has a consultancy service for property projects and estate services via a contract with Align Property Partners, a wholly owned company established on the 1st November 2016. The current contract uses the NEC3 Professional Services Contract and runs until 31st October 2021, with option to extend clauses within the contact.
