But how much do they need? The debate about size versus needs is an ongoing one in the UK with its roots in the establishment of a regular army with training needs in the mid nineteenth century. Armies can never have enough land to train, it seems; despite the size of the defence estate in the UK, the Armed Forces and MoD have argued consistently that defence holdings are barely adequate in size for the purposes of military training. Armed Forces are always reluctant to relinquish their lands (Brzoska, 1999).

The Strategy set out a broad strategic framework for the ways in which land use policy on the defence estate would operate, opening with a ‘Charter for the Defence Estate’ (there are echoes here of the Citizen’s Charter programme established by the previous Conservative government). The Strategy set out the framework for the future management of the estate, revolving around 12 specific objectives. These objectives were geared towards maximizing cost efficiencies and improving the general competence of the organization.
