Issue details

Property Holdings (Rolling Entry)

The County Council’s West Sussex Plan sets out its ambition to minimise the burden of local taxation, delivering the best outcomes for residents with the money it spends, whilst living within its means. In 2018 the County Council agreed to adopt an Asset Management Policy and Strategy. An objective of the strategy is to acquire, manage, maintain and dispose of property effectively, efficiently and sustainably, together with optimising financial and commercial opportunities.


This report seeks approval by the Cabinet Member for Finance and Property to confirm that Centenary House (Durrington), Durrington Lane, Durrington, Worthing, West Sussex, BN13 2QB is declared surplus to service operational requirements. Declaring the property surplus enables a further decision to be made on either a sale of the asset (for a capital receipt) or to retain it for wider non-service led activities of the County Council such as redevelopment for investment, regeneration or other alternative uses.
