The assets and property team is responsible for managing the council's portfolio of property assets. The key work of the team includes asset management, estate management, valuations, disposals, vacant building management, data management and mapping.
Maintaining a strategic overview of the Council’s property portfolio, understanding the business drivers behind the requirements for property and changing the portfolio to fit.
Includes managing leases, completing rent reviews, letting buildings to generate income, monitoring payments and managing budgets for elements such as service charges (where Doncaster Council are tenants) and rental income (where we have tenants).
Valuing the Council's land and buildings for accounting purposes, disposals and lettings, and to inform asset management.
Reviewing properties that have become surplus to requirements and marketing them in a way that ensures best value. Site values range from less than £10,000 to over £1m and therefore the approaches can be very different, from auction to a detailed tender and negotiations with developers.
Vacant building management
Managing council buildings that have become vacant to ensure they are risk assessed, properly secured and measures are put in place to minimise any potential health and safety issues.
Recording and reporting on all information to do with the running of the Council's property including key lease dates (for example, expiries), maintenance information, health and safety, values and financial information.
Geographically mapping the Council's land and building information including locations, site boundaries, and linking key property information for example leases, licences and rights of access.
