Council agrees plan to improve green spaces in Portsmouth

on .

Portsmouth City Council 2016This week Portsmouth City Council approved a plan to expand green spaces in the city.

The plan includes introducing trees and plants to urban areas as well as creating a 'green grid' across the city to target areas of poor air quality. In a meeting held on Tuesday 6th November, the council agreed to take the plan to the next stage which will involve analysing the city street-by-street to see where new trees and shrubs are needed. A recent estimation showed that the city's tree canopy cover is just 14 per cent, similar to that of London.

Coastal defences move forward in the north of the city

on .

Portsmouth City Council 2016Over the next fortnight, the North Portsea Island Coastal Defence Scheme will reach two major milestones.

The first of these is the re-opening of the coastal path at the Tipner Lake site between the Mountbatten Centre and Horsea Lane allotments at the beginning of November, with landscaping continuing for the next few weeks. This means that pedestrians and cyclists will be able to access the route in this area and enjoy the features that have been added, such as places to sit and new viewpoints across the lake.
