There will be no public consultation on the proposal to close Alexandria Jobcentre as the proposed move to merge with Dumbarton Jobcentre is 3.4 miles away and 18 minutes by public transport. We have committed to a public consultation for offices over three miles and 20 minutes away by public transport.
