Cane Hill Hospital is included in the portfolio of properties to transfer to English Partnerships as part of a wider agreement with the Department for Communities and Local Government to support the Government's sustainable communities programme. In April 2005, English Partnerships took over responsibility for managing the site and paying for security. They have subsequently reviewed and increased the security arrangements. The increase in the costs reflects this review.
