Asset Management Plan
Cheshire East’s Corporate Asset Management Plan (AMP) is a high level strategy that sits beneath the Council’s over-arching Corporate Plan and alongside the complementary Capital Strategy. The AMP encapsulates the key service initiatives and aims relating to property, and sets the direction for managing the Council’s property portfolio for the next five years and beyond.
Property represents the Council’s largest physical resource in financial terms and is needed to support all our service activities. It therefore follows that proper corporate asset management must be an integral element of high quality service planning and delivery.
By its very nature, property is expensive to procure, manage and maintain, and is also inflexible in terms of responding to changing service needs, so it is therefore important that its management is at the heart of the Council’s corporate forward planning process. Only in this way can we maximise use and efficiency of our property portfolio to support and facilitate modern and changing ways of working and hence make a long term, positive contribution to successful and economical service delivery.
