Armed Forces: Unused Buildings

Volume 684: debated on Friday 14 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many acres of the guarded compound containing the Defence Logistics Organisation headquarters at Andover, Hampshire, are occupied by abandoned and boarded-up buildings; how long these buildings have been unused and unoccupied; what plans for the development of these areashave been made; and when they will be implemented.[HL6797]

Approximately 14 acres of land at the Defence Logistics Organisation site at Andover, Hampshire, are unused and segregated from the main site. The majority of buildings within that area have been unoccupied since 1997, although a few remained in use until 2002. These buildings are maintained in a weatherproof state. There are plans to redevelop some 3.5 acres of the area by 2009 in connection with the proposed relocation of the new land forces headquarters to Andover. At present, there are no plans to develop the remainder of the unused area.
