One-Stop-Shop for Council Services in Market Rasen

A one-stop shop for council services is being created in Market Rasen.

West Lindsey District Council and Lincolnshire County Council services will soon be both available from the Festival Hall which is being refurbished.

Leader of the West Lindsey Distict Council and County Councillor, Cllr. Burt Keimach, Conservative (Market Rasen Ward & MArket Rasen Wold Division) said:
"The project makes sense because people do not always know which council provides which service so if everyone is under the same roof it makes things much easier for the public.

"There will also be substantial savings in running costs which will be particularly welcome in the current financial climate."
Building conversion work will include creating a new reception, toilet and interview room and this will mean closing the Festival Hall office of the district council from Monday 8th November 2010 until Sunday 2nd January 2011.  Cllr. Keimach said:
"During this period district council services, including housing and benefit information, will be available from the county council office in King Street.

"When the work is complete all the district council services and county council functions including social care and registration, will be available from modern and refurbished accommodation at Festival Hall.

"During the work, the district council phone number - 01427 676676 - remains unchanged."
