Here you will find information about the council's commercial property and its management.

Northumberland County Council recognises the importance of the strategic management of its property assets. Property must be used primarily to enable the most efficient provision of services, together with the achievement of strategic objectives. This should be done in the most economical manner.

Asset management planning performs a key role in developing the council’s ambitions for improvements in service delivery.

The main aim of asset management planning is to ensure the opportunity cost of financial resources tied up in land and buildings is minimised and capital and revenue expenditure on the portfolio is directed efficiently and effectively to provide value for money in service improvement.

A robust asset management plan, subject to continuous review, can assist the pursuit of this by:
  • helping to prioritise decisions on spending
  • ensuring property decisions are consistent with service requirements
  • identifying opportunities for innovation
  • provide a context for evaluating capital projects
  • provide a basis for developing public private partnership
  • identifying assets suitable for investment or disposal
  • identifying opportunities to increase income generation or reduce expenditure
