The team delivering the Southsea Coastal Scheme will be back out in Portsmouth at the end of May with a series of pre-planning public information events.

More than 400 people attended the consultation in February where cycling provision, protecting historical assets and fine design details emerged as the most popular themes.

The historic Lumps Fort, an old naval defence fortification next to the Southsea Rose Gardens on Eastney Esplanade, will host a week-long static exhibition where members of the public can pop in between 10am and 4pm daily.

At these events, a range of banners, booklets and drawings will illustrate the key themes raised by the public at previous consultations and demonstrate how these are being addressed prior to the scheme applying for planning permission.

There will also be four additional drop-in events where members of the project team will be available to assist with any queries. These sessions will be held at the following locations and times:

Cllr David Ashmore, cabinet member for environment and climate change at Portsmouth City Council said: “There has been a fantastic amount of collaboration between the scheme and members of the public to date in shaping Southsea seafront, with more than 3000 residents attending consultation events held over the past two years. Some really important points were raised at the final design consultation in February and we're looking forward to sharing how these have been considered ahead of the planning application.”
