Land and Property
Most people use public assets, such as council buildings, leisure centres, libraries and civic offices on a regular basis. They are fundamental to the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of the community and neighbouring areas. They help shape the character of local areas and influence the quality of life for local people. They make an important contribution to local priorities, including education, health, social inclusion, community safety and sustainable development.
The way the council manages its land and property assets can have a significant impact both on the quality of services delivered to the public and the local environment. Effective asset management is essential in bringing 'agility' to land and property assets so that the delivery of the council's goals and objectives are realised in a sustainable manner, at the right time and on budget.
Our Corporate Asset Management Plan shows how our approach to managing land and property assets fits within the council's Corporate Business Planning Framework to ensure that they contribute to the achievement of corporate priorities as identified in the Sustainable Community Strategy.
The Corporate Asset Management Plan is in the process of being update and will be published at a later date.
