TVBC cabinet votes for Romsey office sell-off
10:19am Friday 22nd June 2012 in News
Test Valley Borough Council cabinet members have voted unanimously to sell off the authority’s Duttons Road offices in Romsey and move some staff to a customer services unit at the former magistrates building in the town.
The cost-cutting proposal will mean around 65 staff will have to relocate to TVBC’s Beech Hurst office at Andover Watched by angry members of staff union, Unison, wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the message ‘We’d rather be in Romsey’, the five cabinet members present, none representing wards in the south of the borough, agreed the controversial plan on Wednesday evening.
The proposal will now go before the full council today (Friday) at a special meeting at Duttons Road, from 5pm.
