Liverpool Council calls for offices

Liverpool Council is encouraging developers to consider building offices in Liverpool to accommodate state government jobs being moved to the area.

The state government will require 5000 square metres of office space in the area following the recent announcement that positions from the Community Relations Commission and Family and Community Services would be moving to Liverpool.

The NSW government has called for expressions of interest from developers to deliver office space before July 1, 2016.

Liverpool Mayor Ned Mannoun said the relocation of the government jobs was "a good fit for the community, servicing the needs of residents".

He said the plan would be a catalyst for further commercial development.
