Warwick District Council will be handed over the keys to their new Public Service Centre, to be named Jubilee House, this week.
Jubilee House, which will officially open at the start of 2012, the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, will be home to; Kenilworth Town Council, Jeremy Wright, MP and the Police Safer Neighbourhood Team.
An official public opening will take place in January 2012. The opening will also showcase the public Art Competition held in November to find local art to feature in the new building.
Councillor Norman Vincett, Leader of Kenilworth Town Council, said: “Jubilee House is a fantastic venture and another opportunity for Kenilworth being realised bringing public services in the town together under one roof.”
All services at Jubilee House will be easily accessible from Warwickshire Direct next door which will still remain the first point of call for all Council and Police enquiries.
In tandem with this purchase, Warwick District Council has sold its site in Southbank Road to McCarthy & Stone Developments Ltd. This site will be redeveloped to provide an extra care sheltered home and a new club house for Kenilworth Senior Citizens Club.
The Kenilworth Senior Citizens Club will be temporarily located at Jubilee House while their new club house is built.
