Bosses planning to rent out a floor at a new multi-million council HQ for £300k a year have found that nobody wants to move in.

The £48m Tameside One building in the heart of Ashton-under-Lyne was completed in March 2019, despite the collapse of Carillion which had thrown the scheme into jeopardy.

The building, which covers 160,000 sq ft over two ‘arms’, houses Tameside college in an ‘advanced skills centre’ one side, and the council headquarters, library, and public service desks in the other.

Bosses had aimed to reduce the amount of space in the borough occupied by authority staff by around half, and incorporate energy-saving measures to save £1.5m a year.
