ODPA prepares for the future with move to new central Town location

Published: 13 June 2024

The Office of the Data Protection Authority is moving offices from its current premises at St Martin's House, Le Bordage to Lefebvre Street. 

The move comes after the current lease ended, prompting a search for a new, more suitable office which will allow the ODPA to consolidate resources in a more convenient location while also making efficiency savings which can be put towards better serving the island’s community. 

Twice-monthly drop-ins for the public have been paused since the end of May, and will resume in late August. Any enquiries or concerns will still be dealt with over the phone as usual. An online consultation can be organised if needed. The telephone number will remain the same.

"With our relocation the ODPA will be entering a modern and cost-effective office that will provide us an even better environment to serve and engage with the Bailiwick’s residents.” said Commissioner Brent Homan. “We look forward to holding even more outreach and education activities through our new office.”

The ODPA looks forward to welcoming people through its doors once the transition period is over. 

There are also a number of outreach sessions taking place throughout the year to connect with the local community. These include a new series of breakfast ‘breach workshops’ beginning in July to help organisations understand risks, avoid common pitfalls and develop resilience. Please see www.odpa.gg/events for details.

  • Block A
Lefebvre Court
Lefebvre Street
St. Peter Port
  • info@odpa.gg 
  • +44 1481 742074
