District council agrees it with dispose of the Bridge Buildings site after all its staff has vacated next year.

Torridge District Council (TDC) will look to sell off Bridge Buildings in Bideford once staff have moved out.

Councillors agreed to market the site for freehold or leasehold ‘at the earliest opportunity’ and any offers on the buildings will be considered by the full council.

There are currently 91 members of TDC staff there but the buildings will be vacated by the end of next year to a new extension to Riverbank House.

Work is due to begin on the extension early next year and is set to be completed by the summer.

The first staff members – the IT team – will be moving out this autumn.
