Taking stock

The aim of this research is to disseminate information across the sector on emerging themes being considered by local authorities as part of their property and assets strategies for the future. We consider in turn: -

  • How can councils as service providers, and as employers, ensure that offices, depots and other workplace locations are agile and efficient in meeting any post-pandemic changing needs, and deliver efficient and effective asset management that meets the business and service delivery needs of councils in the coming years?
  • How can local councils use their own influence to support recovery at a community level, through managing their own assets and estates embedded in our place-shaping role?

Our research shows that there are many differing views and approaches envisaged. Many of these
are based on specific local circumstances, whilst others are focused around management direction
in relation to differing models for service delivery, working practice or the vision of the council for its
local economic success.

This research, through a range of surveys, roundtable discussions with the sector and case studies, has been developed to explore and identify how these challenges are being met.
