Coastal Defences Update

From the Southsea Coastal Scheme team

New consultation dates announced for summer 2018

Following our engagement events at the end of last year, we are going to be out and about across the city in July holding a new series of consultation events on our emerging designs. These will be held at:

EASTNEY COMMUNITY CENTRE: 4 July, 1pm-7pm

CANOE LAKE TENNIS PAVILION: 6 July, 1.30pm- 7.30pm

ASPEX GALLERY: 10 July, 1pm-7pm

ANCHORAGE PARK COMMUNITY CENTRE: 11 July, 3pm-7pm

ST JUDE’S CHURCH: 12 July, 1pm-7pm

COSHAM COMMUNITY CENTRE: 16 July, 3pm-7pm

ROYAL NAVAL CLUB & ROYAL ALBERT YACHT CLUB: 17 July, 1pm-7pm

FRATTON COMMUNITY CENTRE: 20 July, 1pm-7pm

We’ll be asking you for your help with some big decisions, which include how some of the seafront roads could be used in the future and how the new defences could look near South Parade Pier. You’ll also be able to sign-up to workshops where you can interrogate the emerging designs with the help of experts, who will explain the opportunities and constraints in each area. 3D visualisations and animations will help you imagine what the emerging designs could look like on the seafront.

Running alongside our consultation will be the beginning of a review of Portsmouth City Council’s seafront masterplan. This strategy is known as a ‘supplementary planning document’, which is intended to guide improvements to this area of the city. Staff from the council’s planning team will be on hand to tell you more and get your feedback at all of the consultation venues. This approach will ensure that all the opportunities that are created by the construction of the new sea defences can be realised in the future. We look forward to seeing you there!
