Plans to demolish a building and create new public space in Portsmouth city centre are set to be considered at a meeting on 4 September.

Cllr Ben Dowling, Portsmouth City Council's Cabinet Member for Planning Regeneration & Economic Development, will be considering a proposal to knock down the building that was formerly home to Drift in the City bar on Isambard Brunel Road.

The site has been unused for most of the last 10 years. The plan suggests demolishing the building and create an enhanced open area which could be used by events, businesses and the community. It would also open up views to Portsmouth's Cenotaph and war memorials.

Cllr Dowling said: "New public space in the city centre would have the potential of creating a real economic and community boost for the area. There could be opportunities for events and stalls which can all work towards our ongoing vision to regenerate Portsmouth's city centre. I'm looking forward to seeing the plans for the former Drift in the City site and what benefits it could bring for residents, businesses and visitors."
