Councillors have voted in favour of surrendering part of the Town Council office premises on Angel Hill, in Bury St Edmunds.

The decision, made at an extraordinary meeting on Wednesday, will reduce the council’s rent and service charges by almost half, saving taxpayers about £15,000 a year.

A wall separating the two areas is expected to be built on Monday.

The council has also decided to lease a parking space at Shire Hall to replace one being surrendered at its office.
