Quote:"Southwark Council is planning to sell its 'Corporate Learning and Training Centre' in Peckham - just over a year after spending £950K on doing it up.
The centre - on Cator Street - is used as a training base and meeting space for council staff. It also includes a specialist educational training centre used to train the borough's teachers. As with many council buildings it was recently considered to be in a poor state of repair and was due for refurbishment. This was carried out between July and September 2006, at a cost to the council of £950,000.
Just a year later the council's Executive committee agreed the borough's new office strategy - relocating a large percentage of staff to a new building on Tooley Street and selling off a number of the council offices that are currently dotted around the borough - including Cator Street"
