New ac­cess point opens

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

A north-east coun­cil of­fice will re­open its doors on Mon­day fol­low­ing a ma­jor £1.75mil­lion re­fur­bish­ment.

Banff Town House, on Low Street, now has a cus­tomer ser­vice point for lo­cal res­i­dents to deal with all lo­cal au­thor­ity re­quests.

Chair­man of Aberdeen­shire Coun­cil’s pol­icy and re­sources com­mit­tee Martin KittsHayes said: “This has been a fairly am­bi­tious pro­ject to make sure we’re mak­ing the best use of our coun­cil of­fices and to help cus­tomers ac­cess ser­vices in a con­sis­tent and con­ve­nient man­ner. It has been de­vel­oped in a way that aims to en­cour­age cus­tom in the town cen­tre and sup­port wider re­gen­er­a­tion of the town.”

JohnCox, chair­man of the lo­cal area com­mit­tee, added: “The new coun­cil ser­vices will bring peo­ple back into the town cen­tre, and the re­fur­bish­ment works at theTown­House will def­i­nitely pro­vide a bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence for staff and cus­tomers alike.”

Dis­abled ac­cess has been im­proved. The hous­ing and ben­e­fits team will be at Banff Town House from Mon­day.
