RAF Linton-on-Ouse, established in 1937, is part of the Defence estate. Flying operations ceased there in 2020. Following an assessment that there was no long-term military requirement for RAF Linton-on-Ouse, the MOD commenced drawing down the site as part of already announced plans to release the site by the end of 2023.

As announced by the Government on 14 April 2022, the Home Office are due to assume occupation of RAF Linton-on-Ouse under a Memorandum of Transfer of Occupation to establish a reception centre for asylum seekers.
