Asset Management Plan Guide and Template

Q Shelter is  pleased to release a new resource for the Queensland community housing sector – an Asset Management Plan Template and accompanying Asset Management Guide.

Q Shelter has been working in collaboration with the Department of Housing and Public Works to produce this resource, and would like to acknowledge their significant contribution, as well as the contribution of several community housing providers to the draft versions of these documents.

We are keen to receive feedback on these documents, and are happy to assist providers with reviewing draft Asset Management Plans.

Please contact Jane West for assistance.

Q Shelter was also grateful to Jim Reeve of Access Community Housing for presenting an Asset Management Plan template at our Housing and Homelessness Conference in 2016.

You can find a copy of this template here.

Property Condition Planning Tool

Q Shelter has developed an asset management tool – a spreadsheet that contains a property register, property condition audit tool and a maintenance and upgrades program and forecasting tool.
