The Defence Estates corporate plan 2005–06 contains key targets for upgrading service families accommodation in England, Wales and Scotland. These targets require 600 quarters to be upgraded in 2005–06 and 900 in each of the subsequent three years. Figures for 2009–10 and beyond have not yet been agreed.

Currently, the planned budget for upgrading service families accommodation stands at some £25 million per year, for the years 2005–06, 2006–07 and 2008–09. This figure is not fixed, however, and can change according to future budgetary decisions taken by the Department.
