Land and Property Disposal
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council are currently selling land and property that is no longer needed for us to deliver our services.
We aim to raise several million pounds over the lifetime of this land and property disposal programme. The savings and capital generated as part of this programme will be invested to improve services and help with ongoing efforts to secure the savings that the authority needs to make to balance its books.

Information about property disposal and asset sales
The following information outlines why we are undertaking a programme of property disposal and asset sales:
- Cabinet has approved the sale of a number of assets as part of an ongoing rationalisation programme.
- The rationalisation programme will see the council operate its services from fewer buildings and share premises with partners. This will generate receipts and reduce running costs.
- It will also reduce our CO2 emissions reducing the councils carbon footprint.
- In the first year we have closed council premises such as the Town Hall, improved our accommodation in some locations such a co-locating Redcar Library with Customer Services in Redcar & Cleveland House and maximised the use of our council accommodation.
- The council needs to save many £M over the next few years as a result of service pressures and the cuts to its funding.
- The council is seeking people who can reinvigorate these buildings and put them to good use to help regenerate the area and drive economic growth.
- Surplus land and properties are being released to the market on an on-going phased basis.
- Some properties could also be transferred under the Council's Community Asset Transfer Policy which aims to enable local groups to submit a business plan as part of the marketing process so that proposals can be considered so that the group could lease or manage surplus council properties.
- For further information about the land and property that is coming to the market and the Councils Community Asset Transfer Policy please contact the Council's Strategic Assets Department 01642 444395/776916/444381/444237.
