Daedalus Seaplane Square

A complex area within the Daedalus Conservation Area.  The land is owned by Homes England but designated by Gosport Local Plan as an Enterprise Zone.

The area consists of a sea front location with large scale hangers with listed internal framework.

As of April 2020, Homes England seek to dispose of the area on the open market. Gosport HAZ is assisting the planning process by championing the historic nature and crucial historic context of the area whilst encouraging the two parties to reach agreement around infrastructure in the conservation zone and agree the case for demolition of non-listed buildings.

A sale was agreed to Daedalus Development Company and they have achieved Outline Planning Consent.
