Northern Estate

The Parliamentary Estate extends beyond the Palace of Westminster and covers historic and listed buildings north of Bridge Street.

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.
