Work to repair storm damage to the historic TS Hazard building in Faversham will begin soon.

The Grade II* listed building was due to undergo some minor repairs when Storm Eunice caused further damage to the roof. This led to the works being rescheduled to allow additional repairs to be carried out.

The initial repairs were planned as part of the council’s increased maintenance of the building, to help preserve it whilst the plans are drawn up for its future use.

Cllr Monique Bonney, cabinet member for economy and property at the council, said:

“TS Hazard is an important Grade II* listed building, and we’ve commissioned work to help us better understand what we need to do to secure the building.

“The planned repairs will be carried out, along with additional works following the storm damage, as soon as possible.

“We’re actively looking for new uses for the building that are compatible with its historic form and importance, and we have had some interest from potential tenants.

“We don’t want to rush into anything as we want to be sure we’re making the right decision, but I’m optimistic that we can get find a solution to sensitively secure its long-term future.”

The building dates from the fifteenth century and takes its name from the Training Ship Hazard, which was supplied to the navy by the town to fight the Spanish Armada in 1588.
