Since 2007, the Society has been actively involved in campaigning against completely inappropriate development of the Georgian naval officers residential quarter, comprising six Grade 11* and four Grade 11 properties. These include Regency Close ( a terrace of five elegant properties) and the magnificent Dockyard House, formerly occupied by the Chief Superintendent. A London based developer had acquired the properties in 2003 for a knock down price and had plans inter alia to build flats in the gardens and breach the Dockyard wall. Following the decisive rejection of the original proposals, the houses were acquired by the Spitalfields Trust in March 2011 for more sensitive regeneration. The Society were pleased to see the Spitalfields Trust also acquire the ruined Dockyard Church in July 2013. However, the Society continues to monitor developments at Sheerness, including proposals for a vast wind turbine construction facility which would impact seriously on major dockyard buildings such as the Grade 11* Mast House. The condition of other Dockyard buildings such as the Grade 1 listed Boat Store continues to cause us concern.The Royal Navy left Sheerness in 1960 and since then there have been major losses of Dockyard heritage particularly in the 1960's and 1970's.The Society is keen to ensure that the remaining Dockyard buildings are both preserved and maintained in an appropriate fashion.
