The Government Equalities Office was established on 12 October 2007. It was based initially in Ashdown house, a Communities and Local Government building in Victoria street in London SW1. In February 2008, the GEO moved to Eland house, another CLG building, also in London SW1.
The GEO’s area in Ashdown house was not refurbished during GEO’s tenure and there are no plans to refurbish GEO’s area in Eland house.
The GEO’s floor area in Eland house is 372 sq m. No records exist of the floor area in Ashdown house but space there was less than it is now in Eland house.
