A Better Defence Estate, Ministry of Defence, November 2016
The better defence estate strategy aims to support military capability by providing a smaller but better estate for the armed forces and their families out to 2040 and beyond.
It is a detailed, long term plan to reduce the defence built estate by 30% and provides a framework for the geographical lay down of our forces in the UK for at least a generation.
The strategy has been developed in partnership with military leaders and sets out where investment will be concentrated and where sites will be sold to deliver a significantly smaller estate which is more efficient and better enables military capability.
Delivering the defence estate, National Audit Office, HC 782, Session 2016-17, 15 November 2016
The MoD has developed a strategy that identifies the estate it needs and the 25% of its estate it can dispose of by 2040. However, the strategy and current funding levels allow only for a partial reversal of the decline in the condition of the remaining estate. There is a significant risk that the poor condition of the estate will affect the Department’s ability to provide the defence capability needed.
