The Property Office is an integral part of Diocesan Financial Services, having principal responsibility for the management of the building and property portfolio for the Catholic Diocese of Rockhampton.

The portfolio contains a wide variety of buildings and land parcels. In addition to buildings which are typically synonymous with the function of the Church, the mission of the Diocese also extends to providing the community with aged care facilities, as well as a variety of community services aimed at supporting needy and disadvantaged groups. There is also a strong emphasis in providing for strategic areas of growth for its mission, which includes providing suitable land parcels for future Catholic Schools throughout the Diocese.

A key function of the Property Office is to support and provide advice to the Building and Property Committee, which in turn offers specialist advice to the Bishop.

Comprehensive information is held by the office on properties which come under the jurisdiction of the Diocese including Title Deeds, BLIN Maps, Insurance details, planning applications and any available historical details. This information is correlated and electronically stored on the Diocesan Asset Register.

In addition to the above, the Property Office is able to provide advice and support to entities of the Diocese. Typical areas where assistance may be sought relate to matters involving legal issues, acquisitions & disposals, alterations, extensions & demolitions, together with the ability to monitor, review and implement comprehensive maintenance regimes.
