Appointed to the Department of Infrastructure (DIO) to advise on the preparation of a review of the site’s opportunities and constraints.

Montagu Evans provided planning and disposal advice to maintain the heritage assets and incorporate them into a residential-led scheme, providing the DIO with capital receipts and contribution to its strategic objective to generate more housing from its surplus land.

The team completed preparation of a site feasibility report and development brief following liaison and agreement with Medway Council and English Heritage.
