Council's move to International House

International House

May 2024 update

Plans for the council’s move from our Civic Centre base in Tannery Lane to nearby International House are being finalised.

After initially putting forward the idea as part of budget savings proposals in spring 2023, a consultation took place during the summer with various stakeholders including residents, staff and tenants, and councillors approved the move late last year.

There is a strong financial rationale for moving to International House. We own both buildings and significant building and maintenance costs are needed at the Civic Centre over the next few years.

A contractor has now been appointed to help us with the move, which will take place in phases during the rest of the year. We will keep residents up to date on progress, but for now, it is very much business as usual. 

Council office move timeline - Spring 2024: tender, appoint contractor, Summer 2024: fit out works to International House, Autumn 2024: office move, including customer contact centre, Winter 2024: civic suite move
