Great Scotland Yard

Volume 712: debated on Monday 5 October 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have for using the vacant buildings in Great Scotland Yard. [HL5384]

The Crown Estate owns numbers 1 and 3-5 Great Scotland Yard.

Number 1 Great Scotland Yard is a small 1,600 sq ft office building. The occupier is expected to vacate in the short term. The Crown Estate plans to refurbish the space after this and then re-let for office use.

Number 3-5 Great Scotland Yard is a 30,000 sq ft former Ministry of Defence book depository. Potential uses for this property are restricted short term both by its structural integrity and its very poor state of repair.
