Welcome to the Restoration and Renewal Programme
The Palace of Westminster, one of the best recognised buildings in the world, needs essential restoration to preserve it for future generations.
Restoring Parliament will boost UK industries, using UK materials wherever possible and creating jobs and apprenticeships across the country, from engineering and high-tech design to traditional crafts such as carpentry and stonemasonry.
The Palace of Westminster is an icon of our nation’s past, present and future. It is the home of our democracy and a workplace for thousands of people. The building has played a unique role in our political history for 900 years.
The Programme will protect, renew and restore the Palace of Westminster, for present and future generations delivering environmental, social and economic benefits across the UK.
The project is run by a Sponsor Body and Delivery Authority, similar to the 2012 London Olympics. The Sponsor Body sets the scope, budget and timescale. It oversees a Delivery Authority, responsible for completing the work.
