Work is beginning to fit out the interior of Driffield’s new multi-purpose customer service and library facility.
The building on Cross Hill, which is to be known as Driffield Centre, will open to the public in early 2016.
The finished project will see the customer service centre and registrar’s service move into the former library building to provide a new combined customer service and library facility.
Following the completion of external building works, attention is now being turned to the interior fit out with new furniture being installed, along with new library books, all new IT systems and related equipment.
An East Riding of Yorkshire Council spokesperson said: “The building was handed over by the contractors, Hall Construction, to the council at the end of October.
“Their site compound on Cross Hill car park has been removed, and all the parking spaces that they were using are now back in public use, earlier than we had anticipated.
“The new Driffield Centre will provide a number of council services under one roof. This will provide greater flexibility, allowing residents to carry out a wide variety of transactions at their own convenience while, at the same time, being able to use a self-service provision and access information via public access terminals.
“The centre is the latest community hub to be developed in key towns across the East Riding and is part of the council’s drive to lower running costs whilst seeking to improve access to services.”
