Council buildings begin to empty
COUNCIL properties in Clevedon and Nailsea will soon be sold off following the move of North Somerset Council staff to Clevedon’s Castlewood buildings.
The unitary authority has already moved some of its employees into its new ‘hub’ in the north of the district since it was opened to staff on November 1.
As a result, offices in Marson Road in Clevedon and the training facilities in the Four Oaks building in Silver Street, Nailsea, will be two of the first three buildings to be confirmed as surplus to the council’s requirements.
The third is in Fenswood Road, Long Ashton.
In a decision document due to be signed off by Councillor Carl Francis-Pester it has been said the buildings should now be disposed off at the earliest opportunity.

When the proposal to move staff out of smaller district offices and into Castlewood was put forward, North Somerset Council said it hoped to raise �1.3million toward the cost of the move by selling surplus properties and it is hoped these first three will begin to make up that target.
