Council offices since the fire

Services are about back to normal after the fire in mid-january that destroyed the council offices.

The problem is office space. Only about half the staff have space to work inside Abbey House, and the rest are still working from home.

New temporary offices are expected by about the end of May, and that’s looking like it will be in Milton Park off the A34 at Didcot. It’s not finalised yet though.

Once staff have a place to work and all services are back up and running as (fairly) normal (and not from corridors and meeting rooms!), then the discuission begins about what to do in the long term.

Planning website is up and running. although some decisions were dealyed a couple of wek,s things are progressing now OK.
