What will happen to the old Job Centre building?

Regular readers will be familiar with the ‘aspiration’ to redevelop the tired London Road frontage (and the buildings behind it).

A week or two ago, the Job Centre’s premises on the corner of the A30 and Park Street became empty, when the Job Centre moved to the council offices in Knoll Road.  It will be interesting to see what happens to the building now.  Will it be sold on the open market – thus potentially excluding it from any wholesale redevelopment?  Or will it be acquired by the borough council or The Mall as part of an eventual regeneration scheme.  Maybe we’ll find out before too long…..

    • Steve,, The Mall has no more than ‘an ambition’ to redevelop that part of the London Road Block. In public, at least, it’s far from committed. Which is one reason why it will be interesting to see who acquires the Job Centre building.
