Information about this scheme

Accommodating nearly 2000 Council staff and a number of the Council’s partner organisations, this modern, flexible and efficient workplace has been designed to embrace the principles of agile working and creates a diverse series of settings to accommodate a wide range of activities within the building. The inclusion of a Library and a Customer Services Centre blend seamlessly together and encourage public engagement. The additional support of the Training Suite on the second floor complements the strategy and offers a venue for a wide variety of local gatherings, community functions and social benefits. The building is unreservedly modern with slick, light, and spacious interiors providing attractive views out to the surrounding town.
