We undertake the strategic and operational management and development of estates and property cross-College in the core Estate, taking responsibility for inter alia the commercial, lease advisory, planning policy, rating and legal matters relating to property and land.

Performance monitoring - key performance indicators used annually to compare the performance of buildings, campuses and the estate as a whole with peer institutions.

- Communicate across the HE sector.
Planning - monitoring national and local government policies which will affect College buildings.
Planning permission, listed buildings, conservation areas etc - Planning permissions and licences guidance (pdf) on when planning consent will be required or compliance with building regulations necessary.
Legal Issues - ensuring the College’s interests are protected in day to day real estate transactions, landlord and tenant issues, dilapidations, acquisitions and disposals.
Neighbours - managing relations with all campus neighbours from a real estate perspective.
Valuations - collating valuations of the College’s real estate interests.
