The Government has made a commitment to release surplus government owned property with capacity of at least 160,000 homes and raising at least £5 billion from land and property disposals by 2020. The details of the government land and property released over the previous financial year will be published as part of the Transparency Review in summer 2017.

Departments released a total of 468 sites in 2015/16, which generated £973 million.

No land or property releases were contributed by the Wales Office.

The Wales Office is a small Government Department with a single building on Whitehall and lease of half a floor in Cardiff Bay.
