To ask Her Majesty’s Government what land or buildings owned by, leased by, or under the control of, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy they are seeking to dispose of, and for what purposes.
Following the Machinery of Government changes, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is currently considering how best to align the reform agendas of its two predecessor Departments. This will include considering what the right footprint for the Department should be, in order to best deliver its objectives.
To contribute to the Government’s commitment to release surplus land to deliver up to 15,000 housing starts this Parliament, the Department is tasked with identifying surplus land to support 1,000 housing units. We have already identified land to support 977 housing units.
