Moving closer to residents

Leaving County Hall in Kingston
As many of you know Surrey County Council (SCC) is currently based in the magnificent County Hall in Kingston-upon-Thames, which actually isn't within Surrey at all. The borders of Surrey were altered in 1965 creating Greater London but SCC remained at County Hall. That all looks set to change now as the Council begins its transformation journey.
Part of the transformation process is about moving closer to residents and relocating the 1,500 people who currently work in County Hall by 2020. An agent is being recruited to market the building and alternative locations for staff are being looked at, including relocating to other SCC owned buildings. There are also plans to look at how staff can be better equipped to work from home, in non-office locations and other council offices across the county.
The search is on to find the best locations to enable us to serve residents effectively. You can read the latest on the Surrey News website.
