Royal Navy invests in reservist facility

9th December 2016 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The UK Royal Navy has announced an investment of £11million in a new facility for reservists to be built in Cardiff Bay, Wales.

The investment will provide a new training facility for the Royal Naval Reserve (RNR), Royal Marine Reserve (RMR) and the University Royal Naval Unit (URNU) to meet the requirements of the UK’s Reserves Forces for the next 50 years.

The project will be delivered by the Reserve Forces’ & Cadets’ Association for Wales in partnership with the Royal Navy and Associated British Ports, who have offered the navy a long term lease on the waterfront site.

The new facility will provide training and classroom suites, accommodation, administrative services, as well as social and fitness facilities. There will also be access to the waterfront and docking facilities for visiting warships.

The new site will provide shared accommodation facilities for three naval units, the RNR Unit HMS Cambria, the Royal Marine Reserves Cardiff Detachment and the Wales URNU.

Work on the building is set to begin in 2017 and will be complete by 2019.
