There are no plans to close the offices of the Registrar of Companies and the Regulator of Community Interest Companies in Cardiff or the Intellectual Property Office in Newport.

Ofgem’s team in Wales is based in East Tyndall Street on a temporary basis. Ofgem is expecting to relocate the team when a suitable Government Hub becomes available in Cardiff.

We continue to work with the Government Property Agency to ensure our estate is an enabler for the delivery of Civil Service transformation, regional growth and the Government’s vision to strengthen the Union.
