Yet Another Council to Cut Office Space

Yet Another Council to Cut Office Space

Somerset County Council have become the latest in a string of government organisations to announce changes in the way they use their existing office space ΓÇô having approved plans to empty 40% of its office space as part of a ΓÇ£property rationalization programmeΓÇ¥ according to Publicpropertyuk.com.

The scheme, which is referred to as the councils Office of the Future Project, will aim to free up some 230,000 sq. ft. of council office space – with the empty office buildings possibly being sold off in order to help cut a reported £400m debt held by the Council.

Should the scheme prove successful new working methods and property sharing arrangements will be used to accommodate the 3,000 + staff currently based in the office space.

Only today we covered a story about ΓÇ£grace and favourΓÇ¥ apartments in Whitehall, previously used by the likes of John Prescott and Winston Churchill, facing the possibility of being converted to office space as part of the new governments cost-cutting. In addition the Conservative / Liberal Democrat led city council in Birmingham have also introduced a scheme to streamline the way employees use council owned office space.
