Fixed term until 22 May 2024
The One Public Estate (OPE) programme helps local councils, government departments and other public sector bodies to make the best use of their property estate to support service delivery and create opportunities for growth. Our programme is delivered in partnership by the Local Government Association (LGA) and the Office of Government Property (OGP) within the Cabinet Office, and the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC).
The pandemic has prompted reassessment of public service delivery models and estate needs across the public sector, alongside a renewed focus on place and levelling up. With a funded network of partnerships across the country, we want OPE to play a critical role in this as our programme continues to grow and adds further investment on behalf of government partners.
