Government ministers have launched a new website within Gov.uk called Find Me Some Government Space which allows citizens to buy or rent surplus government property online, in hopes of getting rid of unwanted property more quickly.
The website allows the public to search for available property, images and relevant contact details using keywords or postcodes.
According to Chloe Smith, the minister for political and constitutional reform: “We’re making the civil service more efficient and cutting waste, as a result we will have a number of properties both owned and rented that we need to do more with… not only will this website help to save government money but we will see new opportunities, jobs and growth in local economies as new life is brought into empty, unused properties.”
