Stokes Bay Conservation Area Review

Stokes Bay

From 8 October – 19 November, there will be a public consultation on the proposed Stokes Bay conservation area.

A detailed archaeological assessment of Stokes Bay, and the recent characterisation study commissioned by Historic England, highlighted the historic significance of Stokes Bay and the major role it played as part of the Gosport defences.

A review of these conservations areas consider the creation of a new conservation area covering Stokes Bay, and whether the existing designation would be better suited to three distinct zones. The future potential development of the area will be an important element, as will links the extensive heritage interest within Stokes Bay.
