I have read most of the published data re the possible sale of County Hall in Morpeth.
It really is an old building and I am not surprised that it costs nearly half-a-million pounds a year to provide the necessary energy.
It’s some time since I was there, but it’s probably still got its original heating system and I doubt if it’s even double-glazed throughout.
Apparently it needs £10million to bring it up-to-date.
It looks as though it’s been neglected during its life. What was the council doing then?
Will it sell? I doubt if there is much demand for a large, old office block.
That’s probably why they are even thinking of the possibility of housing development.
I wish them well, if only because we taxpayers foot all the bills. As we have to.
