Buckhurst Hill Parish Council moved into its new office in the library on Friday
A parish council has completed a cost-cutting move into a library.
Buckhurst Hill Parish Council’s new office in Queen's Road was officially opened on Friday.
The council says it is set to save £35,000 a year in rent and utility costs.
Council chairman Chairman Aniket Patel said: “I acknowledge that this move has been a cause of sadness for some but it means the council can offer an extra two days of library services at the same time as making significant cost savings.
"This council has been looking at ways of doing more for less."
The parish council is now the third to share a library, following North Weald and Springfield in Chelmsford.
Now, because of the move the library will be open five days per week, rather than three.
