Work about to start on new council multi service centre in Howden

 

Work is due to start on Monday 5 September on a £250,000 project to provide a number of council services in the same location at Howden.

The scheme will involve refurbishing and remodelling the existing customer service centre in the market town to incorporate the library service, which is currently located in the Shire Hall, and the children’s centre, which will be located on the first floor of the upgraded facility. At the conclusion of the project, the new facility will be known as a multi service centre.

This will provide greater flexibility, allowing residents to carry out a wide variety of transactions at their own convenience while, at the same time, being able to use a self-service provision  and access information via public access terminals.

The centre is the latest multi service centre to be developed in key towns across the East Riding and is part of the council’s drive to lower running costs whilst seeking to improve access to services.  It is anticipated that the new facility will be completed in early 2017.

During the work, the council’s existing customer service centre will relocate to the Howden Library at 13 Market Place, Howden. The Howden customer service centre will close at the end of business on Friday 26 August at 4:30 pm, to reopen at Howden Library at 12:30pm on Monday 5 September.

The opening hours for the customer service centre during the temporary relocation will be:

Mon   12:30pm to 3:30pm

Tues   Closed

Wed   10am to 1pm

Thurs  12.30pm to 4:30pm

Fri       Closed

The Library opening hours will remain the same as they currently are:

Mon   4pm to 7pm

Tues   Closed

Wed   2pm to 7pm

Thurs  Closed

Fri       10am to 2pm

Sat      10am to 1pm.          

 Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for civic wellbeing and culture, said:” This is very exciting news for Howden. I am delighted that once again our prudent financial management over many years means we are able to invest in significant improvements in the town. I am particularly pleased that, when completed, the new centre will offer 20 hours of library opening per week, compared to the current 15 hours per week.”

An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said : “ We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these temporary changes in Howden, but would like to reassure our customers that the end result will provide the local community with a modern and cost efficient facility bringing a number of services together in the new year.”
