Liverpool City Council Considers Selling Municipal Building


Liverpool City Council proposed selling its 150-year-old, Grade II Municipal Building and relocating 640 workers in order to save £90M over the next three years.

A report prepared ahead of the local authority's cabinet meeting on 30 September recommends declaring the Municipal Building on Dale Street surplus and selling it, according to Insider Media. The building covers 128k SF of office and storage space across four floors, and has the ability to accommodate 1,000 staff. However, due to cutbacks, only 640 employees occupy the building now.

The council is proposing to start moving those employees to other locations throughout the city this month. The cost would be £1.7M. [IM]
