Have your say

HUNDREDS of workers are set to enjoy a new lease of life at a business park.

Capita Insurance Distribution yesterday announced it will move 800 staff from its offices at Connect Centre in Kingston Crescent, North End, to Lakeside North Harbour in Western Road.

The move, which will be completed by the end of the month, is a result of business growth within the past 18 months. Staff will have an on-site canteen and more parking spaces.

A free bus service is being provided until workers find new travel arrangements. Mark Townsend, managing director of Capita Insurance Distribution, said: ‘After securing contracts with companies such as Virgin Money and Pets at Home, it made sense for us to consolidate our divisions to ensure a healthy future for our employees and customers.’
