The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has started work on brand new single living accommodation at Duke of Gloucester Barracks in South Cerney for the arrival of 2 army squadrons returning from Germany.

The £8 million project will provide 90 new bedrooms at the barracks for Junior Ranks and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers.

The works are being carried out by Lendlease on behalf of the DIO and are due to complete in July this year.

The base will become home to 99 Postal Courier and Movement Control Squadron this summer and to 69 Postal Courier and Movement Control Squadron in 2019. The squadrons are currently based at Gutersloh and Bielefeld in Germany respectively. Following these moves about 118 additional personnel will be based at South Cerney by 2019.

Further development works will follow which include a new build gym, the refurbishment of existing sports facilities and the reconfiguration or refurbishment of offices and storage space.

Defence Infrastructure Organisation Army Basing Programme Director, Mark Duddy, said:


These developments will provide our service personnel with modern fit for purpose accommodation and facilities and are one example of how we’re investing in infrastructure across the UK. I hope the squadrons enjoy their new home.

The moves and infrastructure investment are part of the Army Basing Programme which is providing the facilities the British Army needs to live, work and train in the UK as it returns from Germany, rebases across the UK and restructures to its future Army 2020 formations.

Commanding Officer, 29 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps, Lt Col James Rhodes, said:


The construction of new accommodation at Duke Of Gloucester Barracks is hugely exciting and lays the foundations for welcoming my Germany based Squadrons back to the UK. This and the future construction of new sports facilities and revitalisation of existing infrastructure will dramatically improve the Barracks.

These works, combined with bringing together all of defence’s deployable Postal and Courier and Movement Control Squadrons will significantly improve the quality of life for my soldiers and enable 29 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps to thrive as a unit and to play a greater role in the local community.

Army units already based at Duke of Gloucester Barracks include 29 Regiment The Royal Logistic Corps and Headquarters 104 Logistic Support Brigade.
