A copy of the Department's Service Family Accommodation Void Reduction Plan has been placed in the Library of the House.

The Department is delivering a Void Reduction Plan to reduce the number of vacant Service Family Accommodation properties from around 11,000 to the optimal 10% management margin of around 5,000 by 2022.

This will be achieved through a combination of anticipated increase in occupation by Service personnel and families, disposal, demolition of derelict properties, sub-letting to civilian tenants, and wider estate optimisation.

The announcement in this House on 28 February concerning the Department's revised plans for the future laydown of the Estate under the Defence Estate Optimisation Programme are currently being incorporated into the Void Reduction Plan.
