Views sought on future use for Osborne House


English Heritage is seeking views on what to do with a former military convalescence home at Queen Victoria's former palace on the Isle of Wight.

The buildings at Osborne House, East Cowes, which are managed by English Heritage, were closed in 2000.

The Osborne Estate Act 1902 meant the home could only be used to benefit former military officers and senior civil servants.

It was later amended, enabling English Heritage to bring it back into use.

BBC South Today's David Allard has spoken to Rob Flower, general manager of the house, and MP Andrew Turner who have welcomed the news.
