NEW HOMES TO BE BUILT AT BRIZE NORTON

Demolitiimageon has begun at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire signalling the end of the road for some of the worst military family homes in the UK.

The demolition work is paving the way for the construction of brand new homes for the officers and airmen who will operate and support the next generation of RAF transport and air-to-air refuelling aircraft.

Ministry of Defence  contractors began work yesterday, Monday 14 July 2008, pulling down flats on Upwood Drive; over the next six months they will also be demolishing blocks in and around Northwood Crescent and Stanmore Crescent. In all around 70 flats will be demolished in 2008. The flats were built in the mid-1960s, and are now assessed to have reached the end of their useful life.
