This new arrangement will remove existing lease break clauses and extend the current term from 2026 to 2030. Further negotiated terms have concluded whereby existing lease charges over the initial term will be reduced by £1.6m, these will continue for the duration of the lease creating further value of £800k. Additional operational space has also been secured.
