The Property Strategy Handbook

Building a Local Authority property strategy in six easy steps

Chris Brain

Without strategic asset management, local authorities are borrowing from the future to pay for today.


In a challenging financial environment, local authorities must develop a property strategy that focusses on the essentials, creates engagement across the organisation, is owned by everyone and actually shapes decision-making.

This ground-breaking book will show you, step by step, how to develop a property portfolio that meets corporate and service objectives now and in the future.

This proven methodology will help you:

  • Assess and segment your property portfolio
  • Understand the purpose of each property in your portfolio and how it should perform
  • Put in place effective policies, people and processes to deliver that performance
  • Value the vital role of stakeholders and your leadership team and engage their support
  • Develop and implement a dynamic and flexible property strategy with confidence
