The Council requires an S123 valuation to confirm the sale of its land to the east of Blackwell Farm Guildford.

Reasons for the decision:

The valuation is required asap as the option agreement is due to be completed by the end of February. A short timescale makes tender or mini competition unsuitable.
Decision to appoint the agent that has accrued knowledge of the site due to involvement over 4 or 5 years. This will give them the ability to proceed quickly and limit cost.

Contract 5-6 weeks.
