WORK to bring two historic buildings in Kidderminster back to life are nearing completion, as the district council prepares to move its customer services out of Kidderminster Town Hall.

The Green Street Depot 2020 scheme has seen old offices concealing the listed buildings demolished and replaced, and work is due to finish later this month.

The depot, which already acts as a base for some of Wyre Forest District Council's refuse vehicles, will soon house the council's 'Hub' when it moves from Kidderminster Town Hall.

Wyre Forest Council says the move will offer customers a more seamless and efficient service by bringing customer advice, revenues and benefits, and housing advice teams together under one roof.

The business case for the Depot 2020 project delivers a contribution of £25,000 each year.

It will also, for the first time, offer disabled car parking places for residents who need to visit The Hub in person.

The Hub will close to visitors two hours earlier than usual - at 3pm on Friday, September 6 - and reopen at Green Street an hour later than usual at 10am on Monday, September 9.

People will still be able to call for advice until 5pm on Friday and from 9am on Monday on the usual advice line 01562 732928.
