Gilkicker fencing 'to come down'

The developer of Fort Gilkicker has told Gosport Borough Council that fencing around the site will be removed.

In discussions with the council, Fort Gilkicker Developments Ltd said it would remove the temporary fencing. Work is expected to start as early as today [Wed 15 Aug].

Cllr Mark Hook, Leader of the Council, said: "The developer put the fencing up so preparation work for the development of the fort could go ahead. The council understands this work has temporarily stopped and that the fencing can therefore come down. It will be needed again when the developer resumes preparation work.

"We're in contact with the company regularly and are monitoring the situation very closely. This development gives the best possible chance of the fort being protected and preserved for the future."

Some safety fencing will still be needed on-site, to stop access to piles of cleared vegetation. Security fencing at the bottom of the fort will remain, to prevent anti-social behaviour.
