    Default Hovercraft Museum

    Hello all

    some of you may be aware of this via facebook if you have sent your thoughts on then thanks for that. For those not in the know the Hovercraft Museum is under threat as the land that it sits on is up for development and does not include the museum in anyway.The museum contains some early examples of racing craft as well as many other historical craft i dont know what would happen to them if the museum were to close but i think you can all guess.please object to the planning on this link http://www.gosport.gov.uk/gbcplannin....aspx?ID=17976

    Thanks Tim

    My objection sent to the planners.

    If the proposed developement goes ahead then it is more than likely that the hovercraft Museum will have to close. This would be a tragic loss to the UK. The hovercraft museum is the only museum of its kind in the world and has a massive collection of hovercraft and memorabelia. The hovercraft was one of the great British inventions and as such deserves to be preserved.

    If this site housed an old wooden ship or a listed builing the proposed developement would not be allowed to take place. The Hovercraft museum is just as important if not more so than the above and as such should be preserved for future generations.

    Since when has logic or importance or objections etc, ever stood in the way of the money people?

    If they want to build on it, they will, no matter what "people" do or say.

    My protest will be placed tonight!

    Mmmmmm, disagree with that dude. 50 homes were due to be built up the road from us by a well known, very large developer. Our neighbourhood protested and it got thrown out! Do it right and anything can happen!

    Sometimes it can happen. Will lodge a complaint later tonight.
    Cheers

    You know, just reading the application, maybe one of the acceptance criteria could be "Need to build a building for the housing of the world's only hovercraft museum"....

    OK, pigs may fly....

    You can but hope!

    I am sure Warwick has something up his sleeve, after all, it was all his fault in the first place!
