Full Sutton Prison Build

The construction of a new prison at Full Sutton near Pocklington in East Yorkshire is to begin in the autumn, Kier who are to build it, have been informed.

This project will be a separate facility with its own individual identity and own name. The new buildings will be situated opposite the exsisting HMP Full Sutton and is to have cell space for 1,400 prisoners.

The new prison will be the third of six prisons to be completed as part of the new Prisons Programme. HMP Five Wells in Wellingborough opened in February and was also built by Kier, and HMP Fosse Way in Glen Parva, Leicestershire is being built by Lendlease and is due to open next year.

The new Category C prison at Full Sutton will be the first new prison to operate as zero-carbon in the future, incorporating an all-electric design, solar panels, heat pumps together with energy efficient lighting systems. The prison will also have more workshops and classrooms than many other prisons to help reduce the risk of re-offending.
