Come and find out more at our latest public events


We will be back out in the Southsea community at the end of May with a series of pre-planning public information events.

More than 400 of you attended our consultation in February where cycling and highway provisions, protecting our historical assets and finer design details emerged as the most popular themes.

We have secured the historic Lumps Fort, a disused naval defence fortification on the Southsea coast, to host a week-long static exhibition where you can pop in between 10am and 4pm daily.

We will also be holding four additional drop-in events where our engineers will be on hand to help with any further questions you might have.

At these events, a range of banners, booklets and drawings will illustrate some key themes raised by the public and show how we are addressing these prior to submitting our planning application.

Cllr David Ashmore, cabinet member for environment and community safety said: “There has been a fantastic amount of collaboration between the scheme and members of the public to date in shaping the 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 and detailed design stages.”

The exhibition materials will be available online at the Southsea Coastal Scheme website ( from Monday 27 May 2019.
