The council’s new headquarters in Peterhead could be named ‘Buchan House’.

Members of the Buchan area committee will be asked to forward their suggestions at a meeting in Peterhead later today.

In a report to members , director of communities service, Ritchie Johnson, says the building, located on St. Peter Street/Errol Street, is proceeding well and is on schedule for completion in the Spring of this year.

“The building has been proceeding under a working title of ‘Buchan House’ and for administrative reasons is is now necessary to confirm the title of the new building,” he says.

Councillors will hear that the name was chosen as an obvious one to reflect the offices reach which would extend beyond Peterhead to cover all of the administrative area of Buchan.
