Assets Under Offer



Key messages

  • We are selling council land and property which is no longer needed to deliver services.
  • 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.
  • We aim to raise several £M over the lifetime of the programme.
  • The savings and capital receipts that will be generated from the rationalisation programme will be invested to improve services and to help with the savings the council needs to secure to balance its books.
  • 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 Councils Strategic Assets Department 01642 444395 / 776916 / 444381 / 444237.
