Infrastructure Planning Commission: Offices

Volume 494: debated on Wednesday 17 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate he has made of (a) the annual cost of office accommodation for the Infrastructure Planning Commission and (b) the costs incurred in (i) moving and (ii) refurbishment. (279969)

The IPC HQ offices will be accommodated within the existing CLG estate in Bristol. This is in line with HMT’s Operating and Efficiency Programme and CLG’s Group Corporate Services Programme. Our current estimate of the costs of the programme including accommodation is in the impact assessment published in November 2007and the annex published in January 2009. Further work is under way to confirm the annual costs and refurbishment costs which are subject to negotiation at this stage and therefore commercial in confidence.
