Funding for high street

Gosport’s town centre is set to be transformed following a successful bid for funding from a national £95m regeneration fund.


Gosport Borough Council and Hampshire Cultural Trust (HCT) worked in partnership to submit the bid to Historic England’s High Streets Heritage Action Zones scheme. The aim of the scheme is to deliver physical improvements and cultural activities to regenerate high streets across the country.


Starting in spring of 2020 and spanning a four-year period, the Gosport regeneration project will include a number of major initiatives. Key amongst these will be bringing vacant or underused historical shops back into use, establishing workspaces for small companies, cultural and community events and improving the dining options on the High Street to drive the night-time economy.


The proposed £1.8m development of Gosport Museum and Art Gallery, housed in the town’s Old Grammar School, will anchor the project.
