Royal Waves

An amended design for Frontage 4 (Southsea Castle) has been approved by Portsmouth City Council. The design now involves less rock being used for the sea defences, which is far better for the castle and tunnels and will require less piling to be undertaken. It also includes a new promenade design featuring a 4m-wide upper promenade, four tiers and a 6m-wide lower promenade. The Planning Committee approving the amended design agreed that this is a better approach both socially and aesthetically, and that the changes will contribute greatly toward making this area a ‘theatre of the sea’.
