Bristol City Council to move staff into £18million offices

Posted on by

BRISTOL City Council is to cut down down on its office space by 40% and move swathes of staff in to new £18million offices.

The deal to buy office space at 100 Temple Street, near Temple Meads, has been announced by the city’s first directly-elected mayor, George Ferguson.

It is believed that the consolidation of the local authority’s office space could lead to savings of £40million over the next twenty-five years.

Mayor George Ferguson said: “It makes complete sense for the council to vastly reduce the number of offices it currently owns or leases across the city, and consolidate into a few core offices. The location of 100 Temple Street is very strategic next to Temple Meads and the planned Metrobus interchange, as well as being right at the heart of our ambitious plans for Redcliffe and the whole Enterprise Zone area.

“The recession makes this a good time to make this purchase and it represents a good deal for the taxpayer. It is a sustainable solution that will bring long-term environmental benefits through our investment in energy efficiency measures.”
