Since 2010 the Department has surrendered the following leasehold facilities, reducing the annual cost of the civil estate by around £38.5 million:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Building surrendered</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Location</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Cunard</p></td><td><p>Liverpool</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Belgrave Centre</p></td><td><p>Nottingham</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Sheffield House</p></td><td><p>Stevenage</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Mast House</p></td><td><p>Plymouth</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Riverwalk</p></td><td><p>London</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Westbrook</p></td><td><p>Cambridge</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>City Tower</p></td><td><p>Manchester</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Lysnoweth</p></td><td><p>Truro</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Piccadilly Gate</p></td><td><p>Manchester</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bridge House</p></td><td><p>Guildford</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Queen Street</p></td><td><p>Leeds</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Eland House</p></td><td><p>London</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><br><br>The move of my Department's main building from Eland House to Marsham Street, to share with the Home Office, will reduce our Department's running costs by £9 million a year from 2015-16, and save taxpayers a total of £220 million over the lifetime of the building's lease commitments.</p><p> </p><p><br></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The table below indicates the number of buildings sold in each calendar year:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Calendar Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Buildings sold</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>Nil</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>Nil</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>Nil</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>34</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>23</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The Department did hold one freehold land asset, the Fire Service College which has now been sold. In March 2013, the sale of the 365 acre Fire Service College estate, comprising 34 buildings, other non-habitable structures and land was sold for £10 million. The land was covered by an overage clause meaning the Department will share in any profits from future development of the College site. In addition this has generated savings of £3.9 million in running costs per year.</p><p>Following the College sale the Department is currently disposing of 33 houses in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, which were formerly part of the Fire Service College but were not sold with the main Fire Service College estate. So far this year 23 of these houses have been sold generating a receipt of £5,163,100, and a further 2 houses are under offer. The market value of the properties upon which sales have been agreed range from £215,000 to £250,000 and the total expected income from the sale of the 33 houses and linked development land is around £7,500,000.</p><p>The Department holds 10 remaining residential houses at the site, which will be sold during 2015/2016.</p>

The Department currently has two freehold assets scheduled for disposal:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Building/Site</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Disposal action</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Castle View House, Runcorn</p></td><td><p>Currently vacant and being actively marketed to the public and private sector.</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Mowden Hall, Darlington</p></td><td><p>Scheduled for disposal in the financial year 2015/2016.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The table below illustrates the number of buildings sold in each calendar year since 2010:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Calendar year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Buildings sold</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Since 2010, the Department has reduced the size of its estate from 30 properties, at a cost of circa £51 million per annum, to six properties costing circa £31 million per annum. This is a saving of £20 million per annum.</p><p> </p><p>In 2012, the Department announced an ambitious programme to reduce its estate from 12 sites to six, while maximising the efficiency of the buildings retained. This has now been achieved by reducing the amount of space we use, surrendering unwanted facilities to landlords and sub-letting vacant space to other organisations. The Department has improved the quality and flexibility of its workspace alongside driving down cost.</p><p> </p><p>The Department also plans to vacate Sanctuary Buildings in London at lease expiry in 2017 and relocate to a Government owned freehold building, which will generate a further saving of circa £8.5 million per year. The Department is always looking to maximise the efficiency of its estate and, working with the Cabinet Office’s Government Property Unit, we are currently updating our Strategic Asset Management Plan<em>.</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The table below illustrates the leasehold buildings surrendered since 2010:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Property name</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Location</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>200 Great Dover Street</p></td><td><p>London</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bayley House</p></td><td><p>Bolton</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Brandon Court</p></td><td><p>Coventry</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>City Exchange</p></td><td><p>Leeds</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Enterprise House</p></td><td><p>Wolverhampton</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>82/84 Piccadilly</p></td><td><p>London</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Victoria Square House</p></td><td><p>Birmingham</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Lime House</p></td><td><p>Nottingham</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Whittington House</p></td><td><p>London</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>
