Improving access to the Municipal Offices

To improve facilities for customers at the Municipal Offices, Cheltenham Borough Council has installed three new call points at the building's main entrances. The points allow disabled customers to call a member of staff from the main doors and ask for assistance.

The points are located at the rear of the building, at the main entrance, and to the entrance of the Tourist Information Centre.

A new post box has also recently been installed to the rear of the Municipal Offices.

Cllr Andrew Wall, cabinet member for internal performance and service improvement, says: "We hope that these small improvements will make a big difference. While we all love the Municipal Offices, they were never designed to cope with customers with disabilities. We will do whatever we can to make our offices accessible to all of our residents."

The work took one week to complete and cost approximately £2,000.
