Civic Office Space in Doncaster Gets Green Light
Office space spread over a 5 storey building and totalling 157,500 sq ft will be part of the ┬ú300m Civic and Cultural Quarter (CCQ) to be built in Doncaster after the scheme received the green light.
This new office space will form the heart of the CCQ which will transform the Waterdale area of the town and create a central office space for around 1,400 council staff. The building, located on the site of the former Doncaster College, will also accommodate a council chamber with views over a new civic square and purpose built customer service centre as well sporting a series of strong ΓÇ£greenΓÇ¥ credentials thanks to integrated environmentally friendly technologies.
Staff and services currently located in the office space of Council House, Danum House, Scarborough House, Copley House and Annex, 47 High Street, 1 South Parade, Kings Mews and front line services at Colonnades are expected to be relocated to the new building.
Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies was quoted on thebusinessdesk.com as saying: ΓÇ£In bringing all town centre council services into one modern office complex, residents will no longer have to wander between different locations to make enquiries or complete applications.ΓÇ¥
“Virtually everything residents want to know or do will be under one roof and this will enable the council to deliver the first class service they deserve.ΓÇ¥
Construction of the new civic offices is expected to start by the close of 2010 and it is expected that the new offices should be open for business in late 2012.
