Government announces go ahead for the Defence Establishment
On 10 July 2014 the Government announced that construction could start in 2015 on the Defence establishment that will be part of the creation of the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) on the Stanford Hall Estate. The plan is for work to start in 2015 in order that the existing Defence facility at Headley Court can move from Surrey and be operational on the Stanford Hall estate in 2018. The business case relating to the national facility is expected in 2016. The full Written Ministerial Statement is available here.
Tenders for construction have been received and are being evaluated with a view to contracts being let shortly and work starting this summer. Once construction is underway this website will be updated regularly to allow people to track progress on the development and to follow the DNRC programme as a whole, including the widening of the fundraising campaign which is likely to occur this autumn and will include major engagement with the communities in the Midlands.
