Corporate Asset Management Plan


Our land and property assets are fundamental to successful service delivery, building strong communities and supporting economic growth across the County.

The assets we have are varied both in type and locality, from managing public parks, schools and children's homes to delivering office and industrial space.

With assets valued at £1.04bn, 23,000 acres of land and 893 buildings the Council is one of the most significant landowners in the County.  An asset base of this size requires strategic direction and an encompassing framework that recognises how land and property are essential to delivering the Council's wider objectives.  

The Corporate Asset Management Plan has been prepared to capture and deliver this.  It sets out the basis for how our property and land assets should be managed and how we wish to improve the estate.  It also shows how we are making a positive contribution to both the delivery of public services and the growth and development of the County as a vibrant and ambitious County.
