LONDON- Defence Estates, the property arm of the Ministry of Defence, has sold the 193-acre Queen Elizabeth II Barracks site in Church Crookham, Fleet, Hampshire to Bryant Homes. The QEII Barracks were formerly the base of the Royal Ghurkha Rifles but the regiment relocated in September 2000.

The residential developer’s proposals for the site include approximately 1,000 houses, new local shops, sports and community facilities, a new primary school and more than 100 acres of public open space and woodland. Also included will be a memorial to the Nepalese-born soldiers who died in service while based there.

Atis Real Weatheralls advised Defence Estates, and Director Brian McLeish said: “This is a major brownfield site located in one of the key areas identified for residential development by the government. The barracks does, however, hold a lot of memories for a great many people from the time that it was an operational army base and it is only fitting that a memorial of some kind is placed there in recognition of this.”
