倫敦市政廳。委員會發現建議的節約是誤導性的

薩迪克-汗曾聲稱此舉將在未來五年內節省6100萬英鎊,但GLA的監督委員會發現真實數字更接近3700萬英鎊。

然而,監督委員會發現,聖馬丁地產集團一直在與GLA合作,以降低租金報價,這將在五年內節省2400萬英鎊。

其餘的節省將來自於取消租金成本和降低水晶大廈的能源成本,該大廈被委託成為世界上最環保的可持續發展辦公室之一。

即將離任的委員會主席Caroline Pidgeon指責市長堅持 "激進 "的項目時間表,"鑑於聯合街臨時住所的成功,這對我們來說似乎沒有必要"。

她說。她說:"現在我們已經住進了新樓,我們需要繼續工作,讓市長負責,所有這些問題都需要透明地解決。

"我們期待着市長對我們關於倫敦政府所在地搬遷的問題和建議作出回應。"

"市政廳的搬遷在五年內可以節省6100萬英鎊,用於投資倫敦從大流行病中恢復,並保護重要的服務,包括警務、倫敦消防隊和交通網絡。


Sadiq Khan had claimed the move would save £61m over the next five years, but the GLA's Oversight Committee found the true figure was closer to £37m.

However, the Oversight Committee found St Martin's Property Group had been working with the GLA on a reduced rental offer which would have saved £24m over five years.

The remaining savings will be made from the elimination of rental costs and a reduction in energy costs at the Crystal, which was commissioned to be one of the most environmentally sustainable offices in the world.

Caroline Pidgeon, the outgoing chair of the committee, accused the mayor of sticking to an "aggressive" timescale for the project, "which appeared unwarranted to us, given the success of the temporary accommodation at Union Street".

She said: "Now we have taken residence in the new building, we need to get on with the job of holding the mayor to account and all these issues need to be transparently addressed.

"We look forward to the mayor's response to our questions and recommendations on the relocation of the home of London's government."

"The relocation of City Hall is saving £61m over five years to invest in London's recovery from the pandemic and protect vital services including policing, the London Fire Brigade and the transport network.
