Planning for a new phase

We've submitted a planning application for an amended design to the seafront area between the Pyramids and Speakers Corner. This area is known as Frontage 5 (West). The application will be made available for public comment shortly, in line with the usual planning application procedures. We'll let you know when it is published on the Portsmouth City Council website. We know the value of the area known as ‘The Red’ to the local community and skateboarders, and would like to assure you that the design will provide a safe and flat open space for people to practice their sport, similar to the existing provision. Surfacing material will be chosen to ensure suitability for all users. In addition, all listed shelters will be reinstated.
