Gosport Borough Council (GBC) Property and Housing Services
Gosport Borough Council (GBC) and Portsmouth City Council are working in partnership to the mutual advantage of both authorities. GBC has remained an autonomous local authority with a housing service based in Gosport.
Gosport borough is on the beautiful south coast, boasting a magnificent heritage thanks to centuries of links with the Royal Navy. Its unique waterfront attractions and history give it a special character, and it benefits from 25 miles of coastline, including the sailing hub of Portsmouth Harbour and beaches at Stokes Bay and Lee-on-the-Solent.
It is also a borough with unique economic opportunities. Its military heritage means it is strongly represented in the advanced manufacturing, aerospace and marine sectors. And as military needs have changed, the borough has gained development sites with huge potential.
Gosport has convenient links to the motorway network and the main south coast trunk road, and a short ferry hop provides a link to the main rail line to London.
