Advising Brent Council on this contract designed to provide 465 units of social housing (including 15 supported independent living flats) together with 35 units dedicated to the provision of accommodation for adults with learning disabilities. The Contract is due to reach commercial close soon. We have advised the Council throughout the project from the beginning of the procurement including advising on a flexible form of OJEU notice allowing for the social care element of the project to be included or excluded from the arrangements, through to selection of the preferred bidder and now the detailed contractual negotiations. We have advised the Council on the requirements of the Valuing People framework and have also advised on issues around potential judicial review and human rights challenges as a result of the proposed changes to the "institutional" nature of the present accommodation for adults with learning disabilities.
