Bluff Service Centre to move home

The Invercargill City Council Bluff Service Centre is making the move back to its home in Gore St.

The Service Centre was temporarily shifted to the Bluff Town Hall in March while the adjacent Club Hotel building was undergoing demolition.

Invercargill City Council Group Manager Community Engagement and Corporate Services Trudie Hurst said Council was pleased to announce the Bluff Service Centre would reopen at its home at 98 Gore Street at 2pm Friday 17 May.

“Following on from the successful demolition of the Club Hotel, this afternoon we’ve received approval from the engineers that it is safe for our staff to return,” Hurst said.

“To make the move home as seamless as possible, the Service Centre, which is currently operating out of the Town Hall, will be closed tomorrow morning while staff make the shift.

“It’s a great outcome and I’d personally like to thank everyone who has been involved in both moves and to thank the community for their patience and understanding throughout this process.”

“We would also like to thank the Bluff Hill/Motupōhue Environment Trust for kindly co-sharing their space during this period,” Hurst said.

The Bluff Service Centre would return to full operations and normal operating hours from Saturday.
