The Ministry of Defence will shortly commence negotiations with Portsmouth city council to agree the terms on which land will be transferred as part of the Portsmouth City Deal. Horsea Island (East) is surplus to Defence requirements and the expectation is that this will be transferred in the spring of 2014. Tipner Ranges remain in regular Defence use so cannot be transferred until suitable facilities have been reprovided elsewhere.
