Invicta Park Barracks

Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 62848, tabled on 2 February 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what safety assessment his Department has carried out on the Invicta Park Barracks site to determine whether the land is suitable for house building; and if he will make a statement.

Answered on

7 February 2017

The Department's intention to close Invicta Barracks in 2027 forms part of a strategy to optimise the Defence estate to better support our Armed Forces.

The relevant safety assessments will be carried out at Invicta Park Barracks as part of the Department's standard disposals process.

The closure of the site may also contribute to future Government housing targets. Any future uses of the site will be determined by the local authority and the future owner.
