Defence Estate Optimisation Plan

Post by David Thompson » Tue Oct 20, 2020 8:20 pm

Nothing in this section yet so with thanks to Forces Net ;

"Ministry of Defence (MOD) plans to overhaul its property portfolio will see a number of military bases closed down in the coming years.
As part of the Defence Estate Optimisation (DEO) plan, mobilised in 2016 to kickstart 25 years of construction, key sites will receive investment while others will be disposed of to reduce the MOD's footprint.
A new Red Arrows base, Royal Air Force training facilities, infrastructure for British Army brigades and work on consolidating Royal Navy and Royal Marines estate will feature in an investment package worth billions of pounds.
The DEO will also invest in more than 25,000 new and refurbished houses and single-living accommodation, contemporary office space for more than 12,000 people, and 63 specialist military workshops and garages. It is hoped the construction work will create about 20,000 jobs in the UK."

Interestingly , and from a northern perspective , no mention of Linton On Ouse closing in 2021 , allegedly , and I didn't realise that Dishforth Barracks Airfield was slated to close in 2031 .
