It is Ministry of Defence (MOD) policy to prioritise training on property that is owned, leased or licensed by the MOD.

Training on Private Land (TOPL) is the alternative solution when the MOD is unable to allocate suitable training facilities on the MOD training estate and the proposed activities are compatible with private land uses.

TOPL at the Brecon Beacons is used by several units including the Infantry Battle School. The majority of training is for navigation and endurance covering large distances whilst assessing individuals map reading ability.
