Description: The PETP will change the way the prison population is managed. It will create reception prisons which will service the courts and manage those on remand. The training estate for sentenced prisoners will be improved and expanded so that the supply of places meets demand. For prisoners nearing the end of their sentence or on short custodial sentences there will be enhanced resettlement prisons. PETP will improve how female offenders are managed through the creation of small community prisons. These changes will be delivered through the reconfiguration of the existing custodial estate and the construction of new prisons and smaller houseblock units within existing prisons. The programme's capital value is in excess of £10m and will likely have a steel element within it.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The issues in the custodial estate that PETP was created to assist in resolving (replacing inappropriate prisons and conditions with modern, resettlement focused prisons and ensuring prisoners were held in appropriate conditions) have continued, and, while population pressures are also an ongoing concern, the vision of the programme remains intact and relevant. Despite challenges faced, the programme continues to progress. Bids have been received for the sale of HMP Holloway, and the detailed design contracts for construction to begin at the Wellingborough and Glen Parva sites are in the final drafting stages. Reconfiguration of the estate has progressed well and the second Video Conferencing Centre has now been installed in Wandsworth and is operating to the satisfaction of all affected.
