Richmond House and Wellington House are used to deliver the Department's operations. The other sites are owned by the Department and a disposal strategy is in place for each of them. Some of these sites have buildings, but as they are non-operational and the value lies in the land for asset value purposes, so there is only an asset value for the land. Work is ongoing in the Department to rationalise the estates portfolio as part of the Government drive to create efficiency savings.
