The immigration removal estate is kept under ongoing review to ensure that the Home Office has sufficient capacity, in the right places and that it provides value for money.

The Home Office has acquired the former Hassockfield Secure Training Centre in County Durham and will open it as an immigration removal centre by the Autumn. Initial discussions with the planning authority have taken place and work will commence at the site shortly.

In order to meet operational needs and demands, we will continue to operate the immigration removal estate, in a flexible manner.
