Homes England appoints 66 delivery partners

Julia Hatmaker

Muse Developments, Eric Wright Group and Castle Green Homes are among the companies to be part of the £20bn Homes England Dynamic Purchasing System framework.

This framework is part of an overhaul of how procurements and land disposals are handled. Homes England is moving towards a digital platform that allows developers and housebuilders to apply to be named a preferred delivery partner at any time, rather than just when the list renews every four years. The framework and DPS were announced in September.

“This marks a significant step forward in the way we work with developers to build homes,” said Stephen Kinsella, chief land and development officer with Homes England. “The flexibility of the DPS means that housebuilders can apply to join when it suits them, or when they see a relevant site on our Land Hub.”

Of the 66 companies appointed to the framework, 24 are SMEs.

Sister companies Muse and Lovell, both part of Morgan Sindall Group, were part of the initial 66 groups to be named preferred delivery partners.

“To be named on this national framework with Homes England is testament to the tenacity of everyone at Muse,” said Muse managing director Matt Crompton. “We’ve been working hard throughout the pandemic, in partnership, to help repurpose and regenerate communities and deliver direct benefits to them.

“We’re proud to support Homes England and bring both our track record, resources and expertise to help them accelerate the delivery of much-needed residential-led development in our towns and cities across England as they will be the catalyst to the country’s economic recovery.”

Lovell managing director Steve Coleby said the company was “very proud of” its appointment to the framework.

“Creating homes and communities that have a positive impact on people’s lives has been at the heart of our business for 50 years and this partnership will ensure that we continue to have the opportunity to use our expertise to build and regenerate spaces that have a long-lasting impact on society,” Coleby said.

“The DPS framework is the largest of its kind and provides many exciting future development opportunities, supporting us to achieve our purpose of transforming communities through innovative new residential construction and regeneration programmes and delivering much-needed housing across England.”
