MoD to sell off 91 sites for housing

Defence secretary Michael Fallon has announced that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is going to sell off nearly a tenth of its defence sites by 2040 in an attempt to meet its target to provide land for 55,000 homes.

More than 32,500 acres of defence land is being released, including 10 surplus airfields and five golf courses, which, according to the MoD, will also contribute to the government's target of delivering 160,000 homes by 2020.
