COLCHESTER’S JobCentre is to move from its High Street base.

The office is to be relocated from the town centre to other JobCentre Plus offices in Chapel Street South, off Southway.

A Department for Work and Pensions spokesman said there was no date yet set for the move, although it would happen later this year.

He said: “Moving to Chapel Street will enable us to deliver all of our services under one roof, while making more efficient use of taxpayers’ money.

"Given the close proximity of the two offices in Colchester town centre, the move will have little impact on customers or staff.”
