Have your say

COUNCILLORS have agreed to sell off Portsmouth’s Citizen’s Advice Bureau headquarters.

Portsmouth City Council’s cabinet yesterday voted in favour of putting Dugald Drummond House, and nearby Greetham Street car park, on the open market.

The charity will have to find another building to operate from – and the council will no longer subside its rent when it moves.

The CAB’s licence agreement expires this month and the charity has requested an extension until April 2013.

The council sees the building as an ‘attractive prospect for future development’.
