Key Messages

  • The One Public Estate programme shows what can be achieved when public sector organisations work collaboratively to address shared agendas. Communities across the country are seeing the benefits from the programme. Early projects have already raised £164 million in capital receipts, reduced running costs by £24 million, created 5,745 jobs and released land for 3,336 homes.
  • The programme supports 78 partnerships across England delivering over 600 projects, and in addition to the financial benefits, by 2020 it is expected to deliver 44,000 new jobs and land for 25,000 new homes.
  • Of the 600 projects currently being delivered, 150 are focused on regeneration, with others aiming to release surplus land for housing or mixed use development, and deliver integrated services for local communities.
  • Further support announced by the Government in February 2019 for over 100 schemes is expected to deliver land for a further 10,000 homes and 14,000 jobs over the next five years.
  • One Public Estate supports a wide range of national agendas, such as health and social care integration, attraction and retention of key workers, creating a smaller and better defence estate, digitising the justice service, and public service reform. In particular it has supported a range of health projects, including integrating health and social care services, releasing surplus NHS land for housing, and supporting independent living and step-down care.
  • The programme is also promoting the use of innovative approaches to housing delivery, including modern methods of construction and the use of small medium enterprises.
