Thorpe St Andrew Town Council has held its first meeting in its new offices at the Fitzmaurice Pavilion, off Pound Lane.
The £30,000 project saw the building's football changing room redeveloped in order to accommodate the council.
It had previously temporarily been based the Roxley Hall on Yarmouth Road after moving out of the Dussindale Centre.
Ian Mackie, town mayor, said the cost of the move was covered by the savings it will make by not having to pay rent at the Dussindale Centre.
He said the new facility had more space and more areas to meet with local residents.
Speaking after the building's opening, Mr Mackie said: 'We were delighted to welcome representatives from the town's thriving community.
'As the town expands, we need to be able to have the space to reflect the growing activity of the council.'
