§ Dr. Moonie
As I said in my answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Wigan (Mr. Turner) on 23 May 2000,Official Report, column 459W, the Ministry of Defence has been conducting a site utility review (SUR) of the Army training estate to identify training areas, camps and ranges which are no longer required in order that they can be closed or sold, thereby saving maintenance costs and where possible generally revenue.642W
The SUR has now been completed, and 21 sites have been identified for disposal. They are as follows:
Site for disposal Location Nesscliffe—Brooklea West Midlands Nesscliffe—Tanglewood West Midlands Caerwent—surrounds Wales Kinmel Park (part of) Wales Hamsterley Forest North East Langdale Forest North East Ripon South Parks North East Stang Forest North East Fridaywood Farm Buildings East Stonebridge Camp East Flat 1 & 2, Grooms Cottage, Hawley Home Counties Rand Plantation, Ash Home Counties Land at Foxhills, Ash Home Counties Land at Junction 4a, M3 Home Counties Binhill Range Scotland Marne Training Area North East Rowlston Range North East Halton Training Camp North West Pilning Range South West Wyke Regis Tented Camp Area2 South West Quorn Terrace/Entrance Longmoor Camp Home counties 1Part of 2Tented camp area only
The Ministry of Defence expects to receive between £10 million and £18 million for the sale of the sites listed. A proportion of this, some £6.8 million, will be used to replace training facilities currently at Rowlston range, Halton training camp and Longmoor camp.
