Around 70 staff will work as one co-ordinated team, and the new £2.5 million building will be open by late summer.

Contact Centre manager, Tracey Lowndes, said: ‘Demand for information and services has already exceeded predictions and with Huntingdonshire District Council coming on board next year they need a second building to house the staff.
