Part of Gosport’s historic Royal Clarence Yard is being marketed for sale with potential use as a new marine industry employment hub.

The 5.7-acre site at the Osborne Road site has been released by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

The site has deep water access to Portsmouth Harbour

“The prestigious, historic nature of the site and access to the harbour make Royal Clarence Yard very attractive for marine use,” said Guy Jackson, associate director at agents Lambert Smith Hampton. “The sale will bring huge employment and economic benefits to Gosport while preserving its historic status and underlining the area’s rich marine heritage.”

Rare opportunity

He added: “This rare opportunity forms the next chapter in the story of Royal Clarence Yard which has, over the last ten years, transformed from its original use as a Royal Naval victualling yard into a successful mix of residential, light industry, office and leisure uses.”

The area for sale includes several listed structures including former tank stores, a steam fire engine house, the New South Store, part of the south range of the Cooperage and the southern boundary wall.

The site is in the Royal Clarence Yard Conservation Area.
