Our housing stock represents our most valuable asset and the largest liability in investment terms. The condition of our properties is also of central importance to tenants and they consistently select the improvement of their homes and a good repairs service as their top priorities.

In the context of self-financing, ensuring finite resources are used in the most cost effective manner is key to the council’s asset management and business planning approach. It is essential to have a sound understanding of the asset base and future investment requirements and options in order to achieve this.

The Housing Asset Management Strategy seeks to set out the underlying principles which sit behind excellent asset management for us and the key strategic projects and programmes which will ensure that we get maximum value from its assets.
