HC Deb 10 December 1997 vol 302 c554W
Mr. Drew

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what proposals his Department has for the future ownership of sites at RAF Quedgeley; and what is the current status of the development brief on options for the sites. [19688]

Mr. Spellar

RAF Quedgeley consists of several sites. The Main Site, is currently being advertised for sale inviting expressions of interest for the freehold on a Joint Venture basis. Gloucester City Council have identified the Main Site as being potentially suitable for redevelopment and are preparing a Planning Brief for the site and surrounding area. The brief will identify the opportunities and constraints for redevelopment.

The outlying sites, known as No. 2, 4 and 6 Sites, were marketed earlier this year. Site Nos 2 and 6 have been sold. We expect to exchange Contracts for Sale shortly in respect of Site No. 4.
