To review and adopt Harrow’s 2023 Corporate Property Strategy (CPS) which will provide a framework to support the development and management of the Council's land and property assets and consider the in-principle adoption of a new Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) which will provide a single platform from which all Estates and Facilities Management functions and business will operate, ensuring a cohesive ‘One Front Door’ approach to property management.
(1) the adoption of the Corporate Property Strategy (CPS) 2023 to 2028, be approved; and
(2) authority be delegated to the Corporate Director Place, in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Business, Employment and Property, to make minor amendments to the Strategy as necessary.
Reason for Decision: The adoption of the CPS will strengthen the Council’s management of its assets, providing greater assurance that they were safe, complied with statutory requirements as well as creating the opportunity to improve the quality and value for money of the services they could deliver for staff, partners and residents. The foundations of this process would require robust data, processes and procedures together with strong governance and decision-making.
