MOD Estate

Volume 450: debated on Friday 20 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what his timetable is for (a) land disposals and (b) re-development positions relating to (i) Aldershot Urban Extension, (ii) Deepcut and (iii) Aborfield; and if he will make a statement. (93333)

In respect of the Aldershot Urban Extension, the Defence Estates Agency is promoting the site for a residential led mixed use development and are seeking to agree a Master Plan for the redevelopment with the local planning authority. It is possible that the land will be disposed of in phases as it becomes vacant.

On Deepcut and Arborfield, the disposal of these sites is subject to the outcome of the Defence Training Review Rationalisation Programme. An announcement about this Programme is anticipated later this year.
