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 New Prisons projects form part of the 10,000 Additional Prison Places Programme and its scope is to build four new prisons (of up to c.1,700 places each).
DCA (RAG) Amber/Red
DCA text: The Infrastructure Project Authority's Delivery Confidence Assessment rating is Amber/red.This is primarily due to the following factors: The project is making good progress; however, it is working to an ambitious timeline and successful delivery is dependent on several factors that are outside of the project's direct control. The need to secure planning permission for three new sites is the principal risk impacting delivery confidence. Engagement and consultation with local communities is either planned or underway to help build support for planned development and delivery confidence is expected to improve in the next period.
