Sheerness Dockyard Church gets green light

The future of Sheerness Dockyard Church has been secured following the award of £4.2m from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, and the achievement of planning approval and Listed Building Consent from Swale Borough Council for an architectural scheme to restore and transform the derelict building and to deliver the £8.1m project.

The scheme has been designed by Hugh Broughton Architects alongside Martin Ashley Architects, following our successful collaboration on the award-winning Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, which re-opened to the public in March 2019.

Will Palin, Chair of the Trustees, Sheerness Dockyard Preservation Trust, commented: “We are thrilled to have received the go-ahead to deliver this exciting and uniquely challenging project after a long period of development and fundraising. The Trust is looking forward to working with our world-class design team led by Hugh Broughton Architects to return this magnificent landmark building to use for the benefit of the local community and the wider region.”
