HMRC has received representations from Wolverhampton Council, Coventry Council and the Mayor of the West Midlands about the closure of the HMRC offices in Coventry and Wolverhampton and relocation of the workforce to Birmingham. HMRC officials recently met with the Mayor and representatives from the two councils.

HMRC conducted high level People Impact and Equality Assessments to inform its initial planning and has already published a summary of this to its staff. It continues to undertake extensive work on people and equality impacts, including gender. Wolverhampton is included in impact work for the Birmingham Regional Centre.
