Invicta Park Barracks

Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 62847, tabled on 2 February 2017

"A Better Defence Estate" is a military-led review.

The planned disposal date for Invicta Park Barracks is 2027. Following the sale of the site, the value of any receipt will be published as part of the Ministry of Defence's (MOD) annual accounts.

The MOD cannot publish the cost-benefit analysis on the sale of the Invicta Park Barracks, as to release the information would prejudice the Department's commercial interests. All decisions to dispose of sites were subject to analysis, to ensure they provided the best value for money.
