The Ministry of Justice provides a range of estates management services to other government departments, including the Home Office.

A lease, in the name of the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, has been taken, on behalf of the Home Office, to accommodate infrastructure for the new Emergency Services Network (ESN).

The site at Ystradffin Farm was identified by the ESN Programme as a suitable location for a 22.5m Extended Area Service (EAS) Communications Tower (lattice mast). Planning for the site has been submitted but not yet granted.
