Maintenance of council buildings

Information on Maintenance of council buildings

Who undertakes the maintenance of council buildings and land?

Decisions regarding the maintenance of buildings and land are determined by the asset strategy department but are undertaken by the infrastructure and facilities department who utilise various contractors dependant upon the nature of the work required and the type of building.

More information on repairs and improvements to council housing can be obtained from the  housing transportation and public protection department.

How do we decide which repairs take priority?

A full programme of surveys is undertaken to identify faults in need of repair. These are then prioritised according to their significance and addressed accordingly within the budget available.

More information on repairs to council housing can be obtained from the housing and public protection department.

What are revenue budgets?

These are budgets held by the asset strategy department and used to maintain the council’s buildings and estate. They are set on an annual basis. The department must manage and direct these budgets for all land and property used by the council in the delivery of its service. The exceptions to this are budgets delegated to schools and the cleaning, caretaking and grounds maintenance elements of other budgets.

A range of policy and strategy documents is available, some of which are chargeable. View the price list:
