Tower Hamlets Council closes Isle of Dogs service
A CENTRE for residents to access council services face-to-face will close from next month.
Tower Hamlets Council says it will save �160,000 a year by shutting the One Stop Shop at Jack Dash House, Marsh Wall.
The facility offers help with council tax, parking, housing queries and benefits, but the council says it is increasingly redundant because so many people are accessing those services online.
It will close from April 1, with residents instead directed to the nearest One Stop Shop at Chrisp Street, as part of an overall package of cuts valued at �55 million.
The council’s website now has 130,000 repeat visitors every month from residents renewing parking permits, paying their council tax or reporting a problem.
