Further to the recent major refurbishment and investment totalling around £27 million, a site review of Baker Barracks is due to begin shortly. This will look at potential future areas for development, any refurbishment plans and provide a road map for the next 25 years.

All Service Family Accommodation is maintained through a programme of pre-planned improvement works, and response maintenance to repair defects. This approach means that all properties meet the Government's Decent Homes Standard at the point of occupation, with ongoing restorative action as required.

The Army is initiating an estate wide Single Living Accommodation (SLA) programme to improve the condition of Army SLA. The SLA at Baker Barracks will be considered and prioritised for funding within this programme.
