All Afghans arriving in the UK under the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy (ARAP) are being resettled due to their contribution to UK military and national security objectives during our mission in Afghanistan.

To temporarily house families arriving in the UK under ARAP, the Ministry of Defence has stood up transitional accommodation across the Defence Estate, including at Nesscliffe Training Area. The Ministry of Defence keeps all transitional accommodation under review in order to manage changes to the arrival and departure rate.

Transitional accommodation on the Defence estate is being used on a temporary basis prior to ARAP-eligible Afghans onward movement into settled accommodation as quickly as possible.

Nesscliffe Training Camp will, in due course, be returned to its previous use.
