Description: The prison population is forecast to rise significantly during the 2020s, and the department is bringing forward new prison places to accommodate new offenders. In August 2019 the Prime Minister announced £2.5bn of funding to deliver 10,000 additional prison places through the building of new prisons and expanding the prison estate. The Prison Estate Expansions forms part of the 10,000 Additional Prison Places Programme and its scope is to deliver c3500 places through expanding the existing estate by building new houseblocks on existing prison sites, modular Category D units for the Open Prison estate, major refurbishments, increased spaces in the Women's estate and a number of smaller scale investments.
