A landmark office block in Great Yarmouth has secured its first tenant since the completion of a £3m refurbishment by owners Citygate Developments.

Norfolk County Council's children's services department has moved into two floors of Havenbridge House in North Quay, on the bank of the River Yare.

The significant letting means that just over half of the seven-floor building is occupied with 28,000sq ft of office space still available.

Iain Reid, director of Citygate, said: 'This important letting is good news for Yarmouth and shows confidence in the town. 'Havenbridge House has recently been comprehensively upgraded into an efficient, contemporary, highly visible, landmark building. 'Following the extensive refurbishment we believe it is now the best office space in town, changing the face of the gateway into Yarmouth. The well-known building is also an integral part of the central business district. The facelift is creating a lot of interest and we hope to announce further new tenants shortly.'

Sheila Lock, director of children's services, said: 'The move to Havenbridge House enables us to bring people together in an improved working environment so that we can provide a better service. It shows a big commitment to and investment in Yarmouth and also demonstrates a good working partnership between the public and private sectors. We are very pleased with our new home, which we think looks fantastic both inside and outside.'
