Background to The Royal College of Pathologists' move
The Royal College of Pathologists was based at 2 Carlton House Terrace (2CHT) since 1969. The College had a long lease from The Crown Estate for the building and was paying a peppercorn rent. As part of a review of our office accommodation for the future requirements of the College, it was agreed by the College Council that the best interests of the College would be to enter into a joint sale arrangement with The Crown Estate.
Proceeds from the sale have been used to purchase a freehold property in Central London in Alie Street, close to good transport links; providing a sustainable base for College business into the future.
In September 2014 contracts were exchanged on the sale of the property.
The College subsequently signed a contract with The Royal College of Psychiatrists to move to its premises at 21 Prescot Street on 9 February 2015 for a short term period whilst the new premises were redeveloped. 21 Prescot Street will serve as the College's temporary offices before we move to our permanent premises at 6-8 Alie Street.
