Our corporate property service manages land and property owned by the authority, however not all land in the borough is owned by us, as much of it is owned by private individuals, companies or other organisations.
We maintain a computerised system which identifies property and land within council ownership. Information is also held on property and land when it is disposed and acquired, lettings and leases of council owned property together with any special conditions associated with the land.
For Commercial and Industrial property that is privately owned, please contact the Regeneration team.

Disposal of surplus land and property - Lambert Smith Hampton.
These mainly relate to larger development sites
This section has released capital receipts of more than £40 million (including £10 million in 1998/1999) since 1992.
This covers a whole range of activities, mainly for other council departments.
For example, the section has reduced the amount of rates paid by us on our operational property (Property owned and used by us). This has produced a saving of around 20% on the 1995 valuation list.
Supporting regeneration initiatives:
