INVERCLYDE Council’s Customer Service Centre staff will begin the move to their new £2 million premises over the next two weekends.
The phased transition will see equipment and furniture moved from the current temporary base at Wallace Place to the new custom facility in Clyde Square, Greenock.
Council Leader Councillor Stephen McCabe said: "This is an exciting project and one that will deliver a noticeable improvement to our customers in delivering the services they expect and rely upon. The purpose-built Customer Service Centre is bright, welcoming and will allow people to access services easily either in person, by phone or through the internet.”
The ground floor of the Municipal Buildings in Greenock’s Clyde Square has been transformed into a one-stop-shop for customers. The historic façade has been retained with structural glazing installed between the decorative pillars.
To facilitate the final phase of the move there will be no service from noon on Friday 8 June. The new Customer Service Centre will open to the public at 8.45am on Monday 11 June.
Depute Council Leader Councillor Jim Clocherty said: "Not only has the façade of the Municipal Buildings been transformed but we are also well underway with work to enhance Clyde Square to provide an appropriate civic centre that reflects the aspirations of Inverclyde Council.
"Customers will also have access to a state-of-the-art single point of contact where staff will be able to deal with any query quickly and efficiently.”
