Publication scheme and transparency

The Essex Publication Scheme provides information about our services, spending and priorities

Lists and registers

Council property

Our property portfolio is spread throughout Essex and includes community schools, libraries, country parks, children’s centres and offices.

This includes sites we own, under a freehold, sites we occupy under a lease as tenants, and sites where we share the lease as a trustee.

You can find all the property we own or have an interest in, in our council property list (XLS, 184.69kB) or on the Essex Land and Property Map (ELPM).

If you have a query about land we own, you can contact our property advisors Lambert Smith Hampton by emailing

Community asset transfer

Sometimes smaller parcels of land or assets we own can be transferred to local community groups. This is known as community asset transfer.

You can read our community asset transfer policy paper (PDF, 444.00kB) to find out more.

If you would like to find out more about this, contact

Register of common land and village greens
