The Party HQ has moved
The move of the party's headquarters from Cowley Street to 8-10 Great George Street, Westminster, was undertaken over the Bank Holiday weekend.
The new HQ offers all the advantages a modern campaigning party needs, as well as even closer proximity to Whitehall and Westminster. Indeed, the Liberal Democrats headquarters just off Parliament Square is nearer to Whitehall and the Houses of Parliament than those of either the Conservatives or the Labour Party.
The party's team of 70+ staff will be spread across one open plan floor and will have more meeting rooms available for staff, politicians and the voluntary party to use for party work.
Chief Executive Chris Fox said:
"I am delighted with how well the move has gone, thanks to a huge effort from everyone.
"To be installed in one floor of an open-plan modern office is already making teamwork across departments better and in the long-term running costs will be much reduced.
"To make this important change in a cost neutral way is also very pleasing," he added. "I am sure the party will see real benefits from the new Lib Dem HQ."
Weekend meetings or training sessions need to be organised with the relevant departments because of the additional security arrangements in, and around the building.
All telephone numbers are the same as well as the usual email and website addresses. The offices (8-10 Great George Street, London SW1P 3AE) will be open from 9.00am to 6pm five days a week.
