The Surplus Land collection has existed since 2008 to provide information to the Department of Health and Social Care, Homes England and the Office of Government Property (OGP), on sites that can be disposed of, thereby contributing to the Public Land for Housing Programme. The collection monitors the contribution made by the NHS to Government targets on release of publicly owned land and the targets for contributions of income from public sector land sales.
