There are no plans for future use of the buildings at RAF Colitshall or Robertson Barracks. The Department is in the process of disposing of the buildings. The Department may decide to use the buildings at RAF Marham, Neatishead Remote Radar Station, and Stanford Army Field Training Centre in the future, but this will be dependent on future requirements.
