Government Property and Estates Conference
“Our drive to modernise and improve the running of the government estate is reducing the cost to the taxpayer, giving civil servants the flexible and modern workspace they need and releasing much-needed land for alternative use.” – The State of the Estate report
The running cost of the central government estate was £2.55 billion in 2015/16, a 7 per cent reduction from the year before. As the public sector seeks to rationalise and streamline its property portfolio, £2.5 billion has been raised by selling surplus assets since 2011.
Since 2013, the One Public Estate asset management initiative has helped local councils cut costs by integrating services and raise money by freeing up land for development. It is estimated that this will have raised £615 million and delivered £158 million of savings by 2020.
Despite this progress, a 2017 report by the National Audit Office concluded that the public sector needs to “make more headway to achieve a shared, flexible and integrated estate”. The new Government Property Agency is set to take over a £3 billion property portfolio with a view to delivering greater efficiencies.
A key part of the strategy to reduce costs and increase efficiencies must also include as a core component a comprehensive understanding of the value in reducing energy costs via innovative technological solutions, with the desired effect of increasing the sustainability of all properties and estates.
Join us for the Government Property and Estates Conference where leading experts will address the biggest challenges facing the public sector estate. Understand how collaboration and shared services can deliver savings, see how new technologies can help make estates more efficient and anticipate how new policies will impact on your organisation.
