Flintshire County Council is to close County Hall and other buildings between
Christmas and New Year to save money on the running costs of Council premises
over the quiet festive period.
Critical services such as emergency housing repairs, social services and
Streetscene services will be unaffected and continue to be provided.
The following locations will be affected by the closure:
County Hall, Mold will close at 5pm on Thursday 24 December 2015 and re-open on
Monday 4 January.
Llwynegrin Hall, (The Register Office) Mold will operate a reduced level of
service, opening as the service requires.
Library HQ County Hall, Mold will close at 5pm on Thursday 24 December and
re-open on Monday 4 January.

workforce over the festive season as many employees take annual leave to spend

period, the costs for heating and lighting remain the same. In the current
financial climate this is an inefficient use of resources and so the decision
has been made to completely close County Hall and the campus buildings over the
Chief Executive Colin Everett added:
The public can be assured that critical services will be maintained during
this period. Essential and emergency services will not be affected.
