Civic Offices

Fareham Borough Council is based in the Civic Offices in Fareham town centre. The building's construction began in 1974 and was completed in late 1975. Before then, our departments were located in different buildings around the town: Westbury Manor housed the Council Chamber and meeting rooms while departments were in West Street, Osborn Road, Trinity Street and Wickham Road, above shops, banks and in portacabins. When we moved into the Civic Offices, residents could visit us in one place. Since then, parts of the building have been updated but it still has some of its original features, such as exposed brick walls in the lift lobby, and the 'open plan' office environment has mostly been kept throughout.

The Council embrace the Government's policy of the "one public estate". This aims to encourage public sector organisations to share office space. We have recently welcomed new tenants into the Civic Offices, tenants include Public Health England, Hampshire Probation Trust, and the Hampshire County Council Brokerage Team.
