Procurement and Award of Contract: Littlehampton County Offices

Littlehampton County Offices is a three-storey property, owned by West Sussex County Council and shared with Sussex Police. 

 

At the time of the August 2021 Key Decision (FP03 21/22) to vacate Centenary House Durrington, options for replacement office space had been identified for County Council staff including for direct engagement with the public. Some of the capacity will be provided by a move to rented accommodation at Durrington Bridge House on a five-year lease.  It is intended to provide the balance of the accommodation at Littlehampton County Offices, which will provide an enduring facility for the Council. A feasibility study has identified a solution that will cost £1.1m to refurbish the property, including making adaptations to reduce the carbon footprint of the building and improve accessibility. 

 

The Assistant Director of Property and Assets will be asked to approve the procurement and award of the refurbishment contract and associated expenditure.
