Former Firestation In Dorchester Up For Sale
4:25pm 31st January 2013
If you didn't know the former fire station in Dorchester is up for sale - you do now.
It's one of the properties listed on a new Government website.
"Find me some Government space", operates the same as Rightmove and shows what property they have to rent or buy.
The aim is to speed up the process of getting rid of empty buildings.
Minister for Political and Constitutional Reform, Chloe Smith said:
"We're making the civil service more efficient and cutting waste, as a result we will have a number of properties both owned and rented that we need to do more with.
"Not only will this website help to save government money but we will see new opportunities, jobs and growth in local economies as new life is brought into empty, unused properties."
Users will be able to access the site via the new government website GOV.uk to search for property to purchase or rent from the government. Property will be displayed with photos and building guides where available. No log-in details are required to access the site which alongside building details will also supply the relevant contact details for the official involved in renting or selling the building.
