The Mayor

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) indicated they needed a site with a minimum area of 15 acres in conjunction with a number of other site characteristics. The LDA is working with the MoJ to ensure that the proposed prison facility is planned in a way that does not jeopardise the potential of adjoining land.
