A relocation cost swept under the carpet?

A planning application for brand new offices at EDDC’s Manstone Depot turns out to be brand new accommodation for the Estates department. EDDC will now have new or refurbished offices in Exmouth, Honiton and Sidmouth.

Surely this is yet another relocation cost and likely to go over budget, just like every other project this year – some of which have been 70-100% over budget.
