At a time when state spending is under scrutiny and pressure as never before, the property strategies of public sector bodies and organisations cannot afford to be anything but exceptional. Budgets are squeezed, cutbacks are made, and yet the scope of services must be maintained; aligning real estate portfolios with property requirements is a skilled and necessary task.

Over the last ten years, Gerald Eve has advised over 250 central and local Government organisations, work that has informed and unique understanding of the financial and legislative framework under which the public sector operates. The firm advises such organisations on development, planning, valuation, viability, business rates, rented housing and partnership working – greatly improving the efficiency of their portfolios.

Gerald Eve is proud that its expertise has been recognised by a number of organisations, with current property consultancy framework appointments include: Homes & Community Agency Property & Multi-disciplinary; London Development Agency (now GLA); Olympic Park Legacy Company (now London Legacy Development Company); Manchester City Council; and Cumbria County Council.
