That is the message from the Homes and Communities Agency which says it isn’t ruling anything out when it comes to the 250-ton vessels.

As reported in The News, the Princess Anne and Princess Margaret could be scrapped as the land they sit on is going to be sold for development.

The land is owned by the HCA and sits within the Daedalus Enterprise Zone, at Lee-on-the-Solent.

A petition has been set up by the Hovercraft Museum Trust to save the Princess Anne as it is in the better condition of the two. So far, nearly 14,200 people have signed it.

A statement from the HCA said: ‘Our aim is to develop the land to create much-needed homes and jobs, and regenerate the local area; however we take our responsibility to national heritage seriously.

‘We are talking to local partners to find a solution for the hovercraft and considering all options, including proposals from the Hovercraft Museum to save one of the craft.’
