Plans for new county hall
Suffolk County Council HQ
The county may move from its present site
A county council is looking at moving its 1,300 workers to new headquarters.

Suffolk County Council will discuss the issue at a meeting on Thursday.

The authority, at present based at County Hall in Ipswich, is looking at a possible move to New Russell House, which had been earmarked for TXU Energi's new head offices.

But the administrators for TXU have been looking to sell the two-thirds completed building near Ipswich Town Football Club - which was originally costed at 40m.

The move would see the council workforce - currently split between five premises - brought together in a single building.

A council spokeswoman said that because of commercial sensitivities the issue would be discussed in a closed session of the council.

If the move goes ahead, the present headquarters of the authority could be used for the expansion of Suffolk College.
