Changes to military housing system
Service family accommodation will be allocated based on the size of families instead of rank, the MOD has announced as it unveiled a number of changes to military housing this week.
The state of housing, particularly for military families, has been a source of controversy for the MOD, with photos and videos being shared on social media showing some of the poor conditions in which some personnel have to live.
The needs-based approach will initially only be used for housing in the UK but could eventually be rolled out at overseas locations.
The MOD said the offer, which will be available from March next year, will be the biggest change to Armed Forces housing in a generation.
