As at 31 March 2014
Ministry Of Defence Estate Information
The MOD owns 228,000 hectares of land and foreshore, (either freehold or leasehold) and holds rights over a further 204,900 hectares of land and foreshore. In total, this is about 1.8% of the UK land mass.
Since 2012, there has been a decrease of some 1,100 hectares in the freehold and leasehold figure. This decrease is in accordance with the trends in the estate over recent years as the Department seeks to divest itself of properties that are surplus to requirements, particularly where these can assist wider government initiatives to provide land for housing etc.
