The Gosport Heritage Action Zone initiatives will be developed over the next five years. Through the Heritage Action Zone initiative, Historic England is working to unleash the power in England’s historic environment to create economic growth and improve quality of life in villages, towns and cities.
Working with local people and partners, including local authorities, Historic England is helping to breathe new life into old places that are rich in heritage and full of promise – unlocking their potential and making them more attractive to residents, businesses, tourists and investors. They are doing this through joint-working, grant funding and sharing their skills.
The Heritage Action Zone will focus on bringing neglected buildings back into use as housing or retail spaces; improve areas to kick-start regeneration, and increase awareness, understanding and appreciation of Gosport’s rich heritage. The scheme, led by Gosport Borough Council, will help to restore the town’s historic character, boost tourism and create jobs.
