pdf Corporate Property Strategy (2.90 MB)

The Council holds and maintains its property estate as custodian for the city’s residents and stakeholders. Our vision is that:

  • council services occupy property that is in the right location, fit for purpose, economic to occupy, and compliant with statutory and regulatory codes
  • the value of our investment portfolio is grown and optimised, providing valuable capital and revenue income to support council budgets
  • we act as a professional and effective Corporate Landlord for the council’s estate, managing it in the best interests of the council and freeing up services to focus on delivery
  • our estate leads by example in the contribution it makes to making Bristol carbon neutral and climate resilient by 2030
  • our assets and activities support regeneration, economic development and housing objectives, creating vibrant and sustainable communities
  • we deliver our objectives through strong relationships working with public and third sector partners, exploiting opportunities to deliver  joined up services from shared buildings
