Tue 3rd December 2013, 9:44 am

Francis Maude, minister for the Cabinet Office, has announced the Government Property Unit has helped seven government agencies move into the newly refurbished 21 Bloomsbury Street, London, in 2014, releasing eight properties onto the market.

The agencies include Sport England, Arts Council England, the Water Services Regulation Authority and the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner.

The property was occupied until 2010 by the Insolvency Service.

Francis Maude said: “This government has a long-term plan to drive up efficiency because hardworking families expect us to make the best possible use of office spaces.

“I’m delighted that this award-winning project will save taxpayers millions and will release property elsewhere.”
