The public services hub is not yet complete but the majority of building works are, which has enabled the council to reopen the main entrance.

During the works services occupying the ground floor will move to other accommodation. Voluntary Centre Services has moved to new office on the first floor, and this move is permanent.

Customers and visitors will be met on the ground floor and will be escorted to the temporary first floor reception.

In some instances the customer services team will be able to deal with their business on the ground floor.

Deputy Leader of the council, Coun Anne Welburn, is pleased this major project is now approaching the final stages.

She said: “By providing as many services as we can under one roof, will ultimately save time and make life simpler for residents.”

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the building works, but we want to make things as easy as possible for our customers.”

Over the coming weeks the council will be working with its public sector partners to tell residents more about this exciting new venture.

The current opening hours at the Guildhall areMonday and Tuesdays 8.30am till 5pm, Wednesdays 8.30am till 3.30pm, Thursdays 8.30am till 5pm and Fridays 8.30am till 4.30pm.
