KEY ACHIEVEMENTS NUMBER 10: SECURING RELEASE OF MOD LAND

We have exciting plans for the waterfront area between the Gosport Ferry and Royal Clarence Marina but before these can be pursued we had to persuade the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (formerly Defence Estates) to release a key piece of disused MoD land. For years I have been battling with the DIO, and at the end of 2014, after I finally attracted an official from the organisation to Gosport we finally got their go-ahead.

The release of this land will unlock the development of the entire waterfront area, where we have plans for a marine business park and a number of commercial ventures as well as improvements to our High Street.
