Council move expected soon

THE move to Morpeth Town Hall is expected by the end of the month, town councillors have been told.

Morpeth Town Council has been planning to move its offices into the landmark building since winning the bid to manage the facility along with Northumberland Registration Services.

Small-scale decorating work has taken place to accommodate staff and computer and telephone systems are being installed.

Now members of the council’s Property and Asset Management Committee have been told that the authority should be ready to move its base into the Town Hall from a neighbouring office in Bridge Street by Monday.
