Development Opportunity with planning Fort Gilkicker has detailed planning and scheduled ancient monument consents which provide for conversion of the building to twenty-two 3-storey townhouses and 4 apartments. The consents have been implemented and preparatory reptile and vegetation clearance and relocation completed. There is some scope to improve the planning consents. Fort Gilkicker is a former naval gun battery constructed between 1863 and 1871 to contend with the growing threat of invasion. It featured 22 gun emplacements in granite-faced casements positioned to guard Portsmouth Harbour and Southampton Water. Today it is a Grade II* listed building and a scheduled ancient monument. It occupies a dramatic and commanding beachfront position on the tip of Gilkicker Point with spectacular panoramic views over the Solent towards the Isle of Wight. To the rear is Gosport & Stokes Bay Golf Club through which the private access road passes.
