Since April 2010, we have reduced the central London administrative estate from 18 to seven buildings with a target of having just two core buildings by 2015. Across the whole MOJ estate, we have already reduced the number of properties from 185 to 111. This has resulted in savings of about £41 million per annum with a target reduction of £47 million per annum by 2015.

Around 500 Posts from the Office of the Public Guardian have relocated from London to Birmingham. The Office of the Public Guardian is an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice. As part of its Estate Transformation Programme, the MOJ is promoting flexible workspace in its central London estate with a 70% desking ratio (seven desks to 10 full time equivalent employees).
