The Parliamentary Archives are due to complete their move from the Victoria Tower in 2025. The future use of the internal space of Victoria Tower is currently within the scope of the Restoration and Renewal Programme as future occupation is likely to require substantial renovations. In line with the mandate set by the Houses, the Delivery Authority has been developing a wide range of options for the restoration and renewal work. These will be shortlisted into a smaller number of options by the R&R Programme Board and the R&R Client Board before summer recess and both Houses will be asked to approve a way forward later this year. The Programme will deliver to the requirements set by Parliament.

The Delivery Authority, working with the Restoration and Renewal Client Team and Strategic Estates, is currently considering the feasibility of early works that could be delivered as part of the Restoration and Renewal Programme in a number of areas including the Victoria Tower.
