Someone said the local rag is talking about Leconfield closing, and moving driver training to South Wales?

Anyone know if this is part of the Defence Training Review bigger picture or uninformed bolllocks ?

All I got on DTR was RAF Cosford to close and Air engineering to relocate to St Athan?

complete bollox. Someone has been stirring up this story when there was NEVER any plan to move driver training away from Leconfield. Even now, Metrix has not yet been given the contract. MoD spin would have you believe that they have won the contract. Negotiations continue.

Metrix have been awarded the contract for the training but there is no confirmation on what sites are going to close.

P_L, clearly they cant tell now what sites will be backfilled, closed, sold etc., 5 years hence when some training will decamp to St Athan. But I think we're able to have a few guesses of the likely candidates.

there are a few other threads on this; but IIRC DST and DISC are going to be largely unaffected be relocation to ST Athan
