Public Sector Consultancy
Years of taking an interest in the growth of our key geographic areas of operation, working closely with local authorities, Regional Development Agencies, Local Enterprise Partnerships, Health Authorities, the NHS, Further and Higher Education Institutions, hospices and any other public sector body in between has meant that we now have an unrivalled understanding of the additional requirements of public sector organisations. Often a social agenda has to be balanced with financial returns in property matters. It is not simply about achieving the maximum price. A social gain may also be of particular importance, or the delivery of a particular task to assist in a wider regeneration project may be just as important as the price achieved.
We provide the link for the public sector with the private sector. We ensure agreement on a commercial basis for social projects, maximising returns for the benefit to the community and not just financial terms. In short we take our role in our public consultancy work seriously.
We have chaired committees for Local Strategic Partnerships, we have advised on housing strategy for Local Authorities, we advise on land acquisition and disposal for educational institutions, we provide strategic asset management advice to public social care organisations, we act as consultants for local authorities carrying out ‘health checks’ on their internal processes, all with a balance of financial and social returns.
