CIPFA property identity image

Event summary

With the proposal that from April 2019 the Prudential Code will require local authorities to publish a capital strategy, the need for an asset management plan is more relevant than ever and will effectively become a mandatory requirement. But what is a good asset management plan? And what is the process to get you there? This event will answer these questions and more.

Further dates and locations are detailed below and the programme schedule will be available soon for event timings.

About this event

An organisation’s property assets and how these are managed are coming more and more into the spotlight due to the reduction in central government grant support and rising costs. In addition appreciation is increasing as to the significant contribution to corporate and service objectives assets can make and still deliver efficiency gains.

Simply ‘muddling along’ in a reactive way, managing operational property issues is not going to cut it. Every organisation needs a strategic direction, a vision of what it expects from its assets, and a map of how it is going to get there.

Over the years we have seen many different approaches to the way local authorities have developed their asset strategies and plans. There is not one single way of doing it, and nor should there be. But in the work we have done for local authority clients we have developed a methodology for the process and at this first event of the Strategic Assets Network we are going to share that methodology with you.

At the end of the day you will be able to take away the CIPFA model approach which you will be able to adapt for their own organisation type and circumstances.

The morning will start with our essential strategic update, a must attend session which will explore what is happening in some of the key areas affecting strategic management of property assets, including reducing budgets, the economic climate, housing demand growth, commercialism, partnership working and political change.
