Weekly update – 16 December 2022

Let there be light

There’s exciting lighting over at Long Curtain Moat! We’re putting new LED lights along the promenade around the historic assets, but did you know there will also be lights installed in the front of the new timber seating? And the lights won’t always be white – just think of the Spinnaker Tower for a clue about the possibilities…

We love it when a plan comes together…

We’ve submitted a planning application for an amended design to the seafront area between the Pyramids and Speakers Corner (near The Briny). This area is known as Frontage 5 (West). The application will be available for public comment shortly, in line with usual planning application procedures. We’ll let you know when it’s published on the Portsmouth City Council website. In the meantime you can check out a fly through video on our YouTube channel.

Build a bridge

The timber bridge at Long Curtain Moat is now complete and looking wonderful. We expect to see the caponier steel bridge installation begin next week, weather permitting.
