Companies are being urged to bid for work in the £480m Sheffield Retail Quarter.

The huge city centre redevelopment ‘will create a wealth of exciting opportunities for local businesses,’ council chiefs say.

A spokeswoman said: “Sheffield City Council is keen to hear from local suppliers who would like to be considered as part of the supply chain.

“We are currently in the process of securing a strategic development partner. The partner will manage and lead the development, potentially assist with final site assembly and assist funding and investment opportunities.

“If you think your products and services could benefit the Sheffield Retail Quarter, please supply information about your company for our secure virtual data room. This will be accessed by bidders who wish to become the strategic development partner.”

The proposals include new offices, homes and restaurants and could create about 2,500 jobs.

Sheffield City Council has released the new plans as part of a consultation. Work could start in 2017 if planning permission is granted in the summer.
