Leicestershire County Council has the aim of saving a massive £79 million over the next four years.
And it plans to do so by relocating offices and saving £850,000 per year just by simply moving space.
The local authority in the East Midlands is cutting running costs and improving its services by relocating to other buildings.
The County Council’s office strategy is to have fewer, better quality, more efficient and better used offices.
It has refurbished one space in the town to accommodate more than 100 council staff, to improve services to the public whilst cutting its costs. It’s said to be the future for council services-joining things together to make them more accessible and easier to use.
Now a social services office will also house the Citizens’ Advice Bureau and a day centre.
Of the almost £80 million the council must save over the next four years due to government budget cuts, £57 million of it is coming from simply working more efficiently. They are further saving £2.4 million from a review of ICT, £2 million from a review of communications, and £7 million from a review of management and administration.
