Property Performance

Strathbrock Partnership Centre

The Property Management and Development services is very much open for business. Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, our staff are currently working offsite and we would ask that all enquiries be emailed to propertymanagement@westlothian.gov.uk where a member of our team will access and action them as necessary. Whilst we have robust business continuity measures in place, customers may experience some impact to service delivery. We are grateful for your patience and understanding at this challenging time. Should you require emergency assistance out of hours, then please contact the council's emergency out of hours service on 01506 280000. 

Regular measurement of asset performance is a fundamental strand in the approach to making better use of assets. This is achieved through the regular collection of:

Statutory Performance Indicators

The Accounts Commission has a statutory responsibility to specify information that councils must publish about their performance, in the form of statutory performance indicators. The information is collected and published locally by each council after being checked by its auditor. It includes the following property asset management indicators:

Public Access

The number of council buildings from which the council delivers services to the public and the percentage of these in which all public areas are suitable for and accessible to disabled people.

Condition

The proportion of operational accommodation that is in satisfactory condition.

Suitability

The proportion of operational accommodation that is suitable for its current use.

School Estate Core Facts

The Scottish Government measures national progress against the aims and objectives of the school estate strategy Building our Future: Scotland's School Estate in the form of regular Core Facts.

Core Facts are a collective basket of measures, which are intended to be useful in illustrating trends within the school estate and to support West Lothian Council's School Estate Management Plan.

The Core Facts and Management Performance Measures on the School Estate include:

  • The extent of the school estate
  • Value of the school estate
  • Condition of the school estate
  • Sufficiency of the school estate
  • Suitability of school estate
  • Financial performance of the school estate
  • Accessibility of School Estate.

Core Facts are collected and published by the Scottish Government.

The latest Core Facts statistics are available to download from the Scottish Government website.
