Bolton Council has decided to carry out some precautionary maintenance work to Bolton Town Hall, starting this weekend.
It is an opportune time to carry out this work as the majority of our office-based staff are working from home in line with the government’s COVID guidelines.
This means that disruption of council services will be kept to a minimum.
While areas open to the public will be prioritised first, services such as the One Stop Shop may be closed for a short period at beginning of next week.
Bolton Town Hall is quite rightly a source of great civic pride for our residents.
A spokesperson for Bolton Council:
“We have identified a potential fault with some of the building’s fixtures, which if left unresolved could eventually become a safety risk.
“While there is no immediate safety risk, we are acting now both as a precautionary step and because current work-from-home guidance means disruption will be kept to a minimum.
“Over the last year, many office-based council staff have been able to deliver an excellent level of service for Bolton residents while working from home.
“We are confident this will continue while the maintenance work is carried out.
“Bolton Town Hall is quite rightly a source of great civic pride for our residents. We will continue to invest in its upkeep, and this is factored into council budgets.”
