Better defence estate strategy
This strategy sets out plans to achieve a more efficient, modern and capability focused defence estate.
The better defence estate strategy aims to support military capability by providing a smaller but better estate for the armed forces and their families out to 2040 and beyond.
It is a detailed, long term plan to reduce the defence built estate by 30% and provides a framework for the geographical lay down of our forces in the UK for at least a generation.
The strategy has been developed in partnership with military leaders and sets out where investment will be concentrated and where sites will be sold to deliver a significantly smaller estate which is more efficient and better enables military capability.
