FOI 2988

Assets

Request

I am carrying out some research into Local Authorities management, ownership, and maintenance of all public buildings and should be pleased if you could provide me with the information listed on the attached sheet under the Freedom of Information Act.

Initially I wish to ascertain which Local Authorities still have in-house services for their Property Professional Services including asset management, but I may also require to make contact with individuals later on to seek further information, hence the reason for names and contact details of persons involved. 

Local Authorities are under severe pressure from Government to reduce unnecessary expenditure as well as eliminating wasteful resources and this research is a means of finding out how Councils throughout England and Wales are dealing with this issue and whether or not some professional services are out-sourced to balance the books.

There are no external providers made responsible for the buildings / property portfolio. There is a current contract with Lambert Smith Hampton to carry out assessments on our non housing stock buildings and to complete some compliance works.

There are no ‘in house’ services that provide the above. At the present time all are requisitioned as required.

Please note that although Mr Tidbury is responsible, he is not qualified in all these areas and we will therefore bring in external expertise as and when required.
