“The suc­cess­ful bid­der will have the chance to de­liver an ex­em­plar scheme in an ex­cel­lent lo­ca­tion, which is in the heart of the Gatwick Di­a­mond.

“We are seek­ing a part­ner with sound fi­nan­cial ca­pa­bil­ity and a long-term com­mit­ment to work sideby-side with the coun­cil.

“We be­lieve this is the best way to suc­cess­fully de­liver the scheme’s am­bi­tions and to pro­vide wider ben­e­fits to res­i­dents and busi­nesses in the area.”
