Rebasing move details
AS Army 2020 begins, the following re-basing moves will take place in 2014: 1 R Welsh will arrive from Chester to join 2 R Welsh; 1 RTR will arrive from Honnington to join 2 RTR; 2 RRF will arrive from Cyprus to join 1 RRF; 215 Signal Squadron moves from Tidworth to Corsham; 1 R Anglian will move from Bulford to Woolwich and will be replaced by 1 Mercian from Catterick.
About 1,200 quarters will be needed for the incoming troops and their families.
Permission has been given to build 322 new quarters for all ranks in Area 19, near the Tidworth Cricket pitch.
This build was set in motion several years ago in response to the general lack of quarters in the Salisbury Plain area.
The number of houses to be built in Area 19 will help fulfil current requirements and are not part of the 1,200 quarters mentioned above.
The Area 19 houses should be completed by March 2017.
