Quality accommodation is very important for Defence and a key enabler of operational capability. The Ministry of Defence continues to make improvements to the Service Family Accommodation (SFA) and Single Living Accommodation (SLA) estate.
In addition to routine maintenance, we have invested in improving energy efficiency through the provision of new boilers, doors and windows, roofs, and external wall insulation.
Additionally, we have installed thousands of new kitchens and bathrooms to provide our Armed Forces and their families with modern facilities. The number of properties that meet the Government Decent Homes standard has increased significantly and now sits at more than 95% of our total stock.
The Single Living Accommodation Modernisation project, has been one of the largest new build and refurbishment projects in the UK and has delivered successful renovations and constructions on 52 locations from Scotland to Cornwall over the last 15 years with over £1.2 billion invested; and we continue to invest in both of these areas.
In parallel, we are developing new accommodation options for service personnel through the Future Accommodation Model programme.
