Award of Call-off Contract at the Halewick Lane Battery Storage site

The Halewick Lane Battery Storage project proposes the re-development of the previously derelict North Sompting Waste Management Site into an income generating battery storage project.


The Cabinet Member for Environment delegated authority to the Director of Environment and Public Protection to award a contract for scheme following the completion of the procurement process.


A call-off contract through the REFIT Framework is required which will permit a contractor to develop and complete a fully costed design, known in the framework terms as an Investment Grade Proposal (IGP). At the completion of the IGP period, and subject to the review and approval of the fully costed design for the project, the County Council will look to award a full design and build contract to a contractor (which will be the subject of a further key decision).


Upon the conclusion of the procurement process, the Assistant Director (Environment and Public Protection) will be asked to award the call-off contract through the REFIT framework.
