At the beginning of October CEH’s Wallingford site became the new headquarters of the organisation with the relocation of the Director's office from Swindon. CEH's Finance, People and Skills, Facilities Management, Computer Support, Knowledge Transfer, Health and Safety and Quality Assurance operations are now focussed at Wallingford. CEH's office at Swindon closed on 30 September 2007.
Brian Butler, Director of Resources and Operations, commented, “The transfer of headquarters functions to Wallingford is an important step along the road towards the creation of the new CEH. This move will help CEH realise its vision to become the world leading centre for integrated science in land and freshwater ecosystems.”
