Planning and property

The Planning and property section of the Estates Department undertakes a number of functions in relation to space planning and property management.

Whilst its major task is to fulfill the University's space planning function, both at the strategic planning and implementation stages, it also covers a number of property-related responsibilities.

Please select a tab below to find more information about what we do. The Planning and Property Service Level Statement provides a comprehensive overview of the services offered.

Space planning

We are responsible for all planning in relation to meeting identified school/department space requirements, including liaison with University senior management, school and section heads and space users. This includes financial control of the budgets approved annually for refurbishment and redevelopment works to meet these needs.

The annual space planning round process is currently under review. If you have any space requests or queries please contact
