North Lincolnshire Council is moving forward with their refurbishment plans. The council has committed to a significant transformation that will alter the way that it works in order to offer more flexible workspace for their staff. As a part of these plans, North Lincolnshire Council are looking for another use for their Grade II listed Civic Centre, located in Scunthorpe.
Lambert Smith Hampton is a Lincoln-based company which offers national property consultancy services to their clients. The consultants will be working on behalf of the company in order to search for different a different use for the listed building.
The North Lincolnshire Council have moved to Church Square House, meaning that council workers are now located in the heat of Scunthorpe. This move is connected to the forward-thinking plans that are expected to boost productivity, business performance, staff morale and staff engagement. It is thought that the changes being made will also hopefully lead to an increased retention of a high performing workforce.
The council are looking to create a more flexible and accessible way of working, across fewer buildings but with a more efficient use of the space. The changes taking place will support all of the different ways that the departments across the council work to support people and communities.
The council has also recently announced plans to transform the town centre as a part of a £60 million regeneration programme. This council move to Church Square in Scunthorpe is part of the regeneration. The move will see the council located next to the new £5 million Ongo Headquarters as well as a new University Centre which is also planned in the area. The investments will hopefully transform the town into a bustling centre that will be able to attract more people as residents, visitors, workers and students.
