Plenty of Buyers Interested in Council's Current HQ in Dorchester

West Dorset Councillors are set to discuss what the future holds for their soon to be old headquarters, Stratton House.

They're moving into new offices on South Walks in Dorchester later this month.

the new offices cost £9.7 million to build and fit out, £1 million less than the original budget.

The District Council says they've had a lot of interest in the Stratton House Complex and even if they accept the lowest bid they save £200,000 a year.

An Executive Committee will look over disposal plans next Tuesday (11th December 2012).

Property and Facilities Manager Rosie Darkin said: "We continue to receive expressions of interest in the Stratton House complex. This gives us confidence that we will be able to realise a better price than the initial bids received."

"The recommendation is to remarket the site to enable those who have expressed an interest to submit a formal bid. Stratton House would then be sold."
