YORconsult Framework subregions map

The YORconsult framework consists of two sub-regional frameworks each with separate lots dealing with different types of works. By structuring YORconsult in this way it ensures that the diverse requirements of regional Local Authorities and other regionally based Public Sector bodies can be met by competent Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) in addition to larger regional and national contractors.

Two regional Local Authorities have collaborated as a project team in the procurement of the YORconsult framework each representing one of the sub-regional frameworks:

  • East and North sub-regional framework – East Riding Of Yorkshire Council
  • South and West sub-regional framework – Sheffield City Council


Each area of the YORconsult framework consists of 20 lots based upon the different disciplines (listed below) however the North and East area has an additional lot for the provision of Coastal services.
