Housing Asset Management Strategy

The Housing Asset Management Strategy is the basis for long term planning, provision and sustainability of Colchester's housing assets.


  • The Housing Asset Management Strategy

The Housing Asset Management Strategy:

  • Defines Colchester's position with regard to asset management and how this aligns to core business objectives.

  • Defines needs, future trends and changes influencing these.

  • Defines the stock, its condition, use and required re-investment over the next 30 years.

  • Identifies the risks and issues relating to the housing assets and how these may be reduced.

  • Defines the methodologies and implementation processes for the Strategy and establishes frameworks and templates for monitoring, recording and evaluating performance.

A Housing Asset Management Strategy is fundamental to the successful delivery of Colchester's objectives within the context of its Strategic Plan 2015-18 by regenerating our Borough through buildings, employment, leisure and infrastructure.

The strategy sets out a number of key actions that will further improve service and operational delivery together with informing future investment decisions.
