A daily-turned-weekly paper has announced it is selling up and moving to new offices, just days after its sister title’s HQ went on the market for nearly £400,000.
It is the latest in a series of office moves by Johnston Press titles.
Earlier this month, the News’s sister paper the Whitby’s Gazette’s historic offices in Whitby Harbour went on the market for £395,000.
Scarborough News editor Ed Asquith said: “The office is up for sale and we’re looking for other, higher quality premises in Scarborough to provide a better environment for staff.”
The paper’s editorial staff was reduced by around six in May 2012 when it switched from daily to weekly publication.
The Gazette’s Grade II listed harbourside offices are being offered for sale by agents Richardson & Smith and Gazette staff are likely to be based at a smaller building elsewhere in the town.
Ed is now the editor of both papers, after former Gazette editor Jon Stokoe was made redundant by publishers Johnston Press earlier this year.
And the Derbyshire Times recently moved out of its historic Station Road home on 22 March after 100 years of publishing and is now based at the Spire Walk development.
