A daily-turned-weekly which put its offices up for sale in June has confirmed that staff will be moving to a new base in a business park early next year.
The Scarborough News, which originally put its town centre premises at Aberdeen Walk up for sale in the summer, has now sold the building and will move to a new location on Scarborough Business Park, around four miles away.
It is expected that staff will relocate to Newchase Court, off Hopper Hill Road, in February or March of 2014.
The confirmed sale of the Johnston Press-owned newspaper building comes after HTFP revealed the regional publisher is looking to raise more than £8m from selling off current and former newspaper offices and former print works.
The editorial staff of the Scarborough News was reduced by around six in May 2012 when it switched from daily to weekly publication.
A spokesman for Johnston Press said: “We know how important the Scarborough News is to our local community and are currently looking at a range of options to ensure the needs of our customers are still met.”
The News’ office was one of three current and former newspaper offices in North Yorkshire which were on the market as a result of the property sell-off.
