Is building ‘fit for purpose’?

LETTER

There is comment that our council will be required to lease extra space as the new building does not accommodate the full council workforce. If this is so, surely someone should be made accountable for not making the building “fit for purpose”, or is this just another shrug of the shoulder by our council representatives.

Footnote response from Gisborne District Council chief executive Nedine Thatcher Swann:

This assertion is not true.

The new building has enough space for our staff. It was never envisaged that staff from the likes of Tairawhiti Roads join us (if that is what the writer means), given our mutual partnership arrangement with NZTA.
