Crediton council office shuts for lunch
4:00pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in News
CREDITON’S council office will now close at lunchtime.
Cuts by Mid Devon District council have meant hourly closure from 12.30pm which came into force on Tuesday.
Liz Reeves, head of customer services, said “With ever-increasing pressure on the council’s budget, we’ve had to look long and hard at how best we can maintain this service, which we know local people really value.
“Of all the options we looked at, closing for one hour at lunchtime will, we believe, have the least impact on the public.
“I’d like to thank all our customers for their understanding.
“This has come about after a full and frank consultation with UNISON and the dedicated Crediton staff, who have agreed to changes in their hours, terms and conditions in an attempt to provide and maintain as comprehensive a service as possible for the public.”
