Major Works and Section 20 Notices
Schedules 1 and 2 - Qualifying Long Term Agreement
These schedules cover long-term contracts (over 12 months) that are entered into by the Council in order to provide a service, such as repairs or lift and door entry servicing.
If it is likely that the service will cost you over £100.00 per year for your share of a service, we must comply with the consultation regulations.
- during the first stage we write to you to advise of the service to be provided
- you are then given a minimum of 30 days to raise observations about the service to be provided
- if you have been served a Schedule 1 Notice, you will be able to suggest (nominate) a contractor
- if you have been served a Schedule 2 Notice, you will not be permitted to nominate a contractor as the works will be advertised in by Public Notice.
Notice of Proposal
- once estimates are received then we must send you a second notice called the ‘Notice of Proposal’
- this Notice provides details of the contractor(s) and estimated costs (if we know them)
- you are given a minimum of 30 days to raise any observations.
Under Schedule 1:
- we must write to you to advise you who we intend to appoint as the contractor and why
- this is not necessary in cases where the contract has been awarded to a nominated contractor, or the contractor who supplied the lowest estimate
Under Schedule 2:
- the Notice of Proposal will advise who we intend to appoint as the contractor
- we do not have to serve a third Notice under Schedule 2 as the contractor tendered through Public Notice
