The 'Better Defence Estate' strategy of 7 November 2016 announced the intended closure of Royal Marines Stonehouse by 2023 and outlined potential options for relocation of the Units currently located there (3 Commando Brigade Royal Marines HQ, Commander Amphibious Task Group HQ and 30 Commando (Information Exploitation Group) Royal Marines). Their future location remains subject to an assessment study that will report in the next 12 to 18 months and will inform more precisely the move dates and locations.
