Camp Hill YouTube: Abandoned Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely is to meet with the Secretary of State for Justice, to discuss the future of Camp Hill.

On Tuesday Mr Seely questioned the Justice Minister – Lucy Frazer – over the future of the former Camp Hill prison site in the House of Commons.

Ms Frazer has offered to meet Mr Seely to discuss the site further next week.

As previously reported by Isle of Wight Radio, the previous Justice Minister Robert Buckland, said he would meet with Island leaders after MP Bob Seely put the question to him at parliamentary questions in July.

Mr Seely said,

“The development of the Camp Hill site is so important for the Island because it can be used to provide good quality one and two-bed housing for Islanders young and old – without the need to rip up our green landscape.

“I want Camp Hill to be an example of a sustainable housing development where houses are built in appropriate numbers for Islanders – and preferably by Islanders.”
