MORE DETAILS have been revealed about plans to transform the Treasure House in Champney Road into a Beverley Hub, which will see several existing council services all under one roof. The £3.3 million scheme includes a new customer service centre and enhanced library, and a new location within the building for the reference library, while the council’s registration services will relocate from Walkergate House. 

There will be a new Changing Places facility and Champney Gardens will also be landscaped. The Tourist Information Centre will move downstairs. The East Riding Museum and cafe will not be affected. East Riding Council expect a planning application will be submitted shortly and says that during the construction period the library will relocate to temporary facilities across the road in County Hall, for a period of up to a year. 

It’s likely there won’t be any public access to East Riding Archives during the construction, but the service will continue online, as it did during the pandemic lockdowns.

BEVERLEY MP Graham Stuart has been reappointed Climate Minister as new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak completed the line-up of his new team.  Mr Stuart, originally appointed to the post within the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy by Liz Truss, will continue to attend meetings of the Cabinet. 

Mr Stuart tweeted: “I am delighted to have been reappointed as Minister of State for Climate by the Prime Minister and look forward to working with Grant Shapps to deliver net zero in the way which best boosts jobs and prosperity.”
