Millbank move confirmed

I'm sure quite a few staffers at CCHQ won't be too displeased about leaving Victoria Street! According to the press release put out tonight:-

The Conservative Party announced today that it is to move Conservative Campaign Headquarters (CCHQ) from its current location of 25 Victoria Street to No. 30, Millbank, following the expiry of its existing lease.

• The move to No. 30 will take place next year, before the lease for 25 Victoria Street expires in March 2007.
• CCHQ will rent approximately 16,000 sq foot of office space, similar to its current requirements. The Party will occupy the 3rd floor of No. 30.
• All staff currently based in Victoria Street will continue to be based in CCHQ at the new location.
• Current occupants of No. 30 include the Department for Constitutional Affairs, steel-maker Corus and the charity Leonard Cheshire. The purpose-built office block is well placed for Parliament and the No. 4 Millbank TV studios.
• The Party continues to own 32 Smith Square, having recently purchased the freehold of Smith Square and the adjoining 67 Tufton Street, and is continuing to review options on its future use.
