Refurbishment of property is not readily distinguishable from other maintenance or upgrade expenditure when compiling data and planning for Service Families Accommodation (SFA).

The Upgrade Programme prioritises those properties identified as being in the greatest need.

There are no properties on the current upgrade programme in the north of England (defined as north of the Mersey/Humber).
