Castle House opens for business

This week we’re celebrating the opening of the brand new £15.4 million civic centre Castle House, next to Queens Gardens in the centre of Newcastle.  This is an exciting development which will bring together services from the County Council, Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, Staffordshire Police and Aspire Housing’s customer services department.

This is a major investment for the town which will help boost the local economy.  By pulling together all these services under one roof in the centre of town, it will also make life easier for Newcastle’s residents.  At the same time moving out of old buildings will save taxpayers millions of pounds in the long run and help local businesses by concentrating hundreds of workers close to the shops.

The four storey building will also be home to a modern library and register office with the library on the ground and first floors.  As well as thousands of books, the library will have a dedicated children’s area, space for accessing archive materials and the photographic collections of national museums and galleries.

Castle House is a significant development for the town and great news for people in Newcastle.  It’s also the largest investment in the town in recent years.
