A number of local Housing Executive offices will reduce the number of hours they are to open due to “the changing needs of customers”.
Offices in Armagh, Banbridge and Portadown will cut their opening hours from Tuesday, May 1.
A spokesperson for the Housing Executive said: “From Tuesday, May 1 our offices at Armagh, Banbridge and Portadown we are changing our office hours to take into account changing needs of our customers.
“The number of customers visiting our offices has greatly reduced over recent years, with many preferring to telephone us or to arrange visits to their home.
“There will be no change in our staffing structures and we are not closing these offices.”
The new opening hours are: Portadown and Armagh Offices – Monday 9.30am – 4pm; Tuesday 9.30am – 1pm; Wednesday closed; Thursday 9.30am – 1pm; Friday 9.30am – 4pm; Banbridge Office – Monday 9.30am to 4pm; Tuesday 9.30am – 1pm; Wednesday 9.30am – 1pm; Thursday closed; Friday 9.30am – 4pm.
All south area offices will still provide a full homelessness service from 9am to 5pm every day, and will have information publicly displayed on how to access services.
