Fort Gilkicker, Gosport, Hampshire

Joint-venture project to acquire and develop this historic former gun battery originally constructed in the 1860s. The building is Grade II* listed as well as being a Scheduled Ancient Monument. A very complex project, sensitive negotiations were required with the Borough Council, the Ministry of Defence and an existing tenant to resolve various land difficulties as well as with the Borough Council and Historic England to resolve various planning difficulties and enhance the original planning consents. The planning consents were then implemented and various initial works carried out before the site was then sold. The company anticipates being retained by the buyer as a consultant through the development process.
