A phased approach to development  

We understand that given the size and complexity of the Fort, together with uncertainty following the pandemic, delivery of the proposals will not be easy.  As such, we plan to bring forward the regeneration of Fort Regent in a phased approach that that is both practical and deliverable. In the short-term repurposing and reimagining existing architecture and outdoor areas for new intriguing and creative spaces. Whilst in the longer term putting in place the evolving creation of a modern leisure destination.  

Phase 1: interim development 1 to 3 years 

Our short-term facilities and activities we plan to deliver over the next few years include: 

  • relocate existing users 
  • strip out the asbestos secondary structures from internal areas 
  • investigate and develop improved access from Snow Hill 
  • regenerate the outdoor spaces to create attractive botanical gardens, moat and rampart gardens, heritage walks and scenic walkways 
  • develop outdoor play areas for children and teenagers, including adventure play with high ropes, wall climbs and children’s sensory play 
  • utilise the internal parade ground area for interim uses, such as cultural and leisure events and exhibitions, markets, sports, food, beverage and retail pop ups 

Phase 2: main development 4 to 8 years  

Our long-term ambition is to create a world class cultural and leisure destination for Islanders and visitors of all ages to enjoy. This includes:
