Question for Treasury

UIN HL1767, tabled on 6 July 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government why the White Cliffs Site for the Inland Border facility is being reduced to 25 per cent of its original size; and what plans they have to sell off the rest of the site.

Answered on

The original site was intended to be used by both HMRC and Defra. The recent decision, which also took into consideration the concerns of local residents, means that the site will now be an HMRC facility only and therefore smaller than the original plans.

Department for Transport, as site owners, are currently evaluating all options before making a decision on the future of the remainder of the land.
