Council offices up for rent in Cambridge

Posted on by

CAMBRIDGESHIRE County Council has put some of its own offices up for rent as part of a cost-saving initiative.

Council officers have been moved out of the county authority’s Castle Court offices in Cambridge and boards advertising its availability have gone up.

Cambridgeshire County Council say they have to save around £149 million over five years, including £38 million in the current financial years.

Cambridgeshire County Councillor Steve Count, Cabinet Member for Resources, said: “In these times of having to find millions of pounds in savings it is right we squeeze every asset we have to help protect frontline services.

We are already sharing buildings with other councils and agencies to make it easier for people to access services while making savings.

I have no desire to sell off the family silver so by leasing this building we will generate savings and still have an asset that we can sell if the time is right.”

Castle Court is being marketed by Barker Storey Matthews who say it has “potential for alternative uses, including residential and student accommodation.”
