Demolition work on burnt-out council offices destroyed in an arson attack could begin next week.
The fire-wrecked offices in Benson Lane, Crowmarsh Gifford were torched in January 2015.
Since then, Vale of White Horse and South Oxfordshire District Council staff have been in temporary accommodation at Milton Park.
Rebuilding from the ashes was ruled out and council leaders have instead opted to demolish the remains and start again, a decision that was taken last year.
A planning application submitted by SODC, which owns the land, last month said bulldozers could move in on Wednesday and that demolition could take until July 14 to complete.
The application added: “It has been decided that the building is unsuitable for re-use due to problems with its structural integrity.
“The most cost effective solution will be to redevelop the site.”
Andrew Main, 47, from Rokemarsh, near Wallingford, admitted starting the blaze and was detained in a mental health unit in May 2015.
The arsonist caused about £20million of damage and intended to kill himself with a chainsaw after starting four fires.
A psychiatric report explained that when Main is untreated while unwell, he becomes ‘acutely psychotic’.
In total 144 fire fighters, 27 crews and 14 specialist vehicles battled the blaze from about 3am on January 15, 2015 for two days.
