Description: To examine and implement the most effective way of closing Rhine Garrison and Munster Station in Germany by: relocating  HQ Allied Rapid Reaction Corps, 16 Signal Regiment & 1 Armoured Division Signal Regiment, plus 102 Logistic Brigade. The exact requirements for the latter are being worked through in light of the Army's Basing Announcement on 5 Mar 13. BORONA is also responsible for streamlining the management of infrastructure and support services in support of UK Defence personnel based in Germany and the European mainland and for releasing estate vacated in Germany as a result of Strategic Defence Spending Review preliminary moves (e.g. Celle).
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The move of the two Signal Regiments from Germany to Stafford is planned for Summer 2015. Prior to the move, Beacon Barracks at Stafford will undergo a major construction and refurbishment programme. This programme is currently undergoing departmental scrutiny and approvals and due to the construction contract’s competitive dialogue procedure a two stage approvals process is required. The amber rating reflects the number of activities which are on the critical path for approvals (contract award and the construction schedule) before the site is ready to receive the two Signal Regiments in 2015.
Start date: 2006-08-01
End date: 2019-03-01
Schedule text: The current elements for closure of the Rhine Military Complex (2014) and full closure of the Rhine Garrison (2016) remain on track, although the latter is dependent on the move of the Signal Regiments to Stafford in 2015. The Army Basing Plan announcement on 5 Mar 13 has amended the timeframe and location for the relocation of 102 Logistic Brigade. Work is ongoing to determine whether the Logistic Brigade remains part of the BORONA programme. Other elements of the basing plan may be added to the BORONA programme for delivery but this is subject to ongoing work.
