Asset management & commercial property team
We’re responsible for the development of policy and strategy for corporate asset use. We also review the use of council property holdings to ensure best use of property assets.
This is a specialist service provided to all departments across the council, including the maintenance of the council's asset register, valuations, property acquisitions, and disposals, together with the collection of rent from the non-operational portfolio.
The latter comprises retail, industrial and business units, sports grounds and other assets in leisure use. The non-operational portfolio, also known as the commercial portfolio, is managed by the property management team’s outsourced contractors, GVA.
Property information overview
- only have a limited amount of property available to rent.

If a council property requires extra maintenance, it will be sold either by tender to the highest bidder or at public auction
