The Corporate Property Strategy (PDF, 780KB) (CPS) and supporting policies set the direction of travel for the council in managing its non-residential property portfolio with the aim to achieve a fit-for purpose and sustainable asset base by 2024. In the context of property management, a sustainable asset base is one which is cost neutral or better.

The CPS sets out the following principles in managing the property portfolio:

  1. Provide the right buildings in the right location and condition to meet service delivery needs, now and in the future.
  2. Reduce the carbon footprint of our property operations, achieving carbon neutrality by 2030 and becoming carbon negative by 2050.
  3. Optimise the value from the Commercial Landlord estate so that property is managed in an efficient, effective, and economic manner.
  4. Deliver value for money by reducing maintenance liabilities and running costs; improving the capital value of the estate; and making saving through smarter procurement.
  5. Support the Council’s growth agenda by using our existing asset base to identify opportunities to develop housing and job creation.
