Request for Quotation: Crewe Local List – evidence base

Closing Date: Wednesday 31st July

Crewe Town Council is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced contractor to support the development of protecting and identifying the built heritage of the town.

Heritage is a key area for development to support the regeneration of Crewe. It provides a tool for developing pride, fostering a sense of identity and raising aspirations. Work has focussed on honing the heritage narrative of the town to achieve these aims and support placemaking decisions. This is helping us expand our understanding of Crewe as a railway town to acknowledge the significance of Crewe Works, and recognise Crewe is a town built as the result of a workplace. This project will support the council in detailing a potential local list of specific properties worthy of protection and greater recognition that support the narrative.

The project will gather the necessary information, data and evidence to support the sustainable implementation of a Local List for planning and heritage conservation purposes, to be adopted by the local planning authority (Cheshire East Council). To achieve this, it is anticipated a suitably qualified and experienced contractor will:

  1. Review the existing draft list in context of the town’s heritage.
  2. Collate and present evidence using the Cheshire East Council approved criteria to support the sustainable planning position of formal protection and recognition of specific buildings and structures in Crewe.
  3. Work with Crewe Town Council and planning authority officers to provide a final report and nominations making the evidenced case for the successful adoption of the local list by the planning authority.

The fee for the project is £9,000.

To submit a quotation please read the Full Brief, Appendix A and Appendix B. Your submission should include:

  • An outline of the process for developing each element of the project defined in 1.2.
  • A detailed cost breakdown for providing the services required. Costs must be inclusive of all expenses and exclusive of VAT (where applicable). The breakdown should include a payment timetable.

  • Evidence of relevant experience of projects of comparable scale, scope and complexity.
