Moving out to make way for revamp
Council staff are moving out of their headquarters in Market Harborough to allow a £5.7 million revamp to get under way.
The offices in the former corset factory in Adam and Eve Street are also being transformed to provide a home for the library and expanded museum.
Shops will be created on the ground floor and offices for Harborough District Council and the county council will be developed.
Council leader Mike Rook said: "The headquarters at Adam and Eve Street is being redeveloped, to improve the facilities and save money."

Most of the staff will be temporarily transferred across the road to Millers House, in Roman Way, including the reception.
From Monday, January 21, face-to-face customer services will be available at Millers House.
Many council meetings will be held in the town but it is expected others will be held at other venues across the district. It is thought the revamp will take about a year.
The council said the changes to the building will save the authority £5 million over the next five years.
Part of the scheme is being funded by County Hall.
