As of January 2022, the only prison currently being built in England and Wales is Glen Parva (Leicestershire), due to open in spring 2023. Minor post-completion work is being carried out at HMP Five Wells (Wellingborough) which is due to open in early 2022. Each will provide c.1,680 modern prison places. We have started enabling work in preparation for the construction of a new prison next to HMP Full Sutton after receiving full planning permission. It is due to open in 2025.

As of January 2022, a major programme of refurbishment is underway at HMP Liverpool.
