Council land and property

The council owns buildings and land throughout the borough. Over time, some become surplus to requirements or vacant and available for letting.

The properties we market include:

  • industrial units
  • commercial properties
  • houses and garages
  • small parcels of land.

Some properties may offer redevelopment opportunities.

These assets are usually sold or let on the open market by tender or auction. This allows all interested parties to submit offers and makes sure that the council gets 'best value'. 

Plant and equipment auction/tender

The disposal process

Due diligence is required when preparing assets for disposal. This means further work is often involved after properties are declared surplus. This can include:

  • securing vacant posession
  • obtaining planning permissions
  • resolution of boundary disputes
  • resolving title issues
  • procuring survey reports (asbestos, energy reports etc.) as appropriate or required by statute.

The council reserves the right to dispose of certain types of property assets direct to third parties, such as sitting tenants and adjoining owners where appropriate. In these cases, the council must be satisfied this action is in their own best interests.
