Reprieve for civic centre
Published on: 30 Jan 2017
SOUTH Gloucestershire Council is keeping its base in Kingswood after finding a new tenant for part of the building.
Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP) wil move in later this year on a 20-year lease.
It will mean the council maintaining ownership of the building and having use of the civic and training facilities, including the Council Chamber. Most staff will relocate their office base to the council building in Yate, while others, including those who need to be based in Kingswood to deliver locality-based services, will remain.
The One Stop Shop will remain in the building and ultimately the library will relocate to the Civic Centre.
