As part of ongoing efficiency work, and a departmental-wide exercise to deliver savings, the Department has conducted a review of its operations and identified a number of rationalisation measures. Browndown Camp has been included within this review. While no firm decision on the future of this facility has yet been taken, it is anticipated that parts of Browndown, in particular the dry training area, will continue to be used.
