Fight to save council offices in Romsey

Daily Echo: Fight to save council offices Fight to save council offices

MORE than 1,000 people have supported a petition against the proposed closure of the council offices in Romsey.

The consultation on Test Valley Borough Council’s plans to close the Duttons Road site, where 85 peoplework, ends today.

The closure, which could see some employees relocated to Andover, would form part of a £1.1m savings programme.

The council is looking for smaller premises which could house a drop-in centre, staffed by around 20. It has said there are no redundancy plans.

The move will be considered by the council's ruling cabinet on June 20 and could then be voted on by all councillors at a special council meeting on June 22.

£100,000 a year savings? One less director makes for 85 happier members of the public sector.
