Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal The Palace of Westminster Restoration and Renewal Programme has been established to tackle the significant work that needs to be done to protect and preserve the heritage of the Palace of Westminster and ensure it can continue to serve as home to the UK Parliament in the 21st century. Following the debates in both Houses in early 2018, Parliament agreed that the ‘best and most cost effective way’ to carry out the restoration and renewal of the Palace in one single phase is to temporarily move out of the building. The collective decision by members of both Houses of Parliament means that work has now begun to establish a shadow Olympic-style Delivery Authority and Sponsor Board, subsequently to be set up through legislation as statutory bodies, to manage the work. The Northern Estate Programme The Northern Estate Programme (NEP) is managing the refurbishment and redevelopment of a number of buildings on Parliament’s Northern Estate, aiming to deliver an estate with increased environmental performance, and improved security, safety and accessibility. Ahead of the restoration and renewal of the Palace of Westminster, NEP will develop additional space and facilities required for the House of Commons to temporarily move out of the Palace, including an operational chamber, committee rooms, and House support services.
