As part of the Main Estimates process the Department (and other Government Departments) will shortly be publishing a full breakdown of its 2015/16 budgets, with an accompanying Explanatory Memorandum to be submitted to the CLG Select Committee.

The £230 million savings are broken down as follows:

- £75 million of resource contingency reductions (including contingency on the European Regional Development Programme);

- £100 million from the over achievement of capital receipts from the sale of public land to support housing development; and

- £55 million of capital contingency reductions.


The savings do not impact materially on any existing commitments or delivery targets.
