Fareham schools issue plea to minister over new funding formula

Have your say

I would like to see traders and the people of Portsmouth agreeing on what happens in Cosham.

The public consultation has been very well received.

Cosham has not had a lot of money spent on it in the last 10 years, so this is a step in the right direction.

I feel more investment is needed due to the fact we have new businesses nearby like Porsche.

Lakeside isn’t that far away either. We have a lot of new businesses coming to the north of the city and I feel the people who work at these places deserve to shop in a lovely retail area.

We need to think about what they do at lunchtimes and what they do after work.

I would like to see more national retailers in Cosham to go with the existing sole traders to provide more of a mix.

I would like to see Cosham going back to how it used to be – a lovely high street where people would shop in the week and then come back on a Saturday.

I think we have lost that.

We are spoilt with Cosham. We have good bus routes and a train station; but it doesn’t mean we should just stop there.

We have to attract people to the area.

We have a beautiful park which is really under utilised. It needs to be used more.

For starters, you can’t have a coffee there.

I think it could be looked at as part of a second stage of the consultation into Cosham’s High Street.

As a whole we need to look at how more people can be persuaded to shop and visit Cosham.

Overall, I am very pleased with the consultation and it’s good to see Portsmouth City Council investing some money into the area.
