Asset review opens opportunities for local committees and communities

5 July 2022
On Tuesday 12 July, Thurrock Council's Corporate Overview and Scrutiny committee is set to consider a paper discussing the future of several their properties. Members of the committee will hear of the success of the council's last asset release programme, which generated capital receipts totalling £9.3million in the 2021/22 financial year.
The council's '3R' policy – Release, Reuse, Retain – is reviewing and releasing a number of surplus and under-used properties wherever possible. This could be by private sale, public auction, tender or on a leasehold basis.

Better services from fewer buildings, proposal put to Cabinet

30 June 2021
Thurrock Council is proposing to provide better services from fewer buildings by disposing of properties which are no longer fit for purpose.
Cllr Mark Coxshall, Cabinet member for regeneration, said: "By reviewing council owned land and property we can dispose of buildings which are no longer fit for purpose.
"This will allow our services to run more effectively without the physical constraints of some dated buildings and deliver exactly what the borough's residents need.
