This Ten Principles publication, the first of a new series on local authority property, focuses on local authorities’ operational estates: the buildings from which they co-ordinate and deliver public services. Creating Value from Local Government Property is based on a two-day workshop and numerous case studies. The focus is on best practices for creating value from local government property in the U.K., which is the source of most of the examples. Nevertheless, many of the messages will resonate across continental Europe. The publication takes as its backdrop a number of major themes, such as the interaction between public and private sector partners to achieve an authority’s goals, and the use of technology to help achieve operational efficiencies and greater productivity.
