One Stop Shop opening hours
South Gloucestershire Council - 29th September 2023
The Council needs to save money. One of the ways we have identified we can do this whilst reducing negative impact on residents is to close our One Stop Shops at times when they are currently being used least.
We asked about this proposed change through our annual consultation on our council budget at the end of 2022 and local people agreed that this was a reasonable way of reducing our overall spend.
We know that relatively few people visit our One Stop Shops early in the morning and in the late afternoon/early evening and we are therefore suggesting changing our opening hours to 9.00 until 16:30 Monday to Friday (current hours are 08.45-17.00 Monday to Wednesday, and 08.45-16.30 on Thursday and Friday).
Before making this change, we want to talk to people who visit our One Stop Shops to check this doesn’t cause them any significant issues. We are asking everyone who visits one of our centres over the coming weeks and months to complete a short survey to let us know how this might impact them, but you also have an opportunity to share your feedback by clicking on the link below.
