The Council owns a diverse range of land and property assets that make an important and positive contribution to achieving our corporate objectives. The quality, condition, suitability and sustainability of our property assets have a direct bearing on the quality and deliverability of front line services. It is therefore extremely important that these assets are managed in a proactive and efficient way.
The Council, through its corporate statement 2013-2018, “Our Plan ”, states:
“We want our communities and businesses to thrive. We want our folk to have the skills our businesses are looking for. We are planning for the best start in life for our young folk and looking at ways to support their personal independence across all the generations. All this, and more, in times which are challenging, not only financially, but also for the growing demands for services we provide”.
Strategic asset management of land and buildings ensures that our property is optimally structured to best align with the Council’s corporate objectives. Our properties must support the main business of the Council which is to provide services.
