NEIGHBOURS are being consulted about plans to improve a shopping area in Portsmouth.

As previously reported in The News, the city council wants to spent £200,000 on making Cosham a better place.

Changes being considered are the widening of pavements, providing safer crossings and making the one-way system around the High Street permanent.

More parking spaces could also be provided.

The council hopes the survey will attract more visitors.

Barry Walker, the council’s city centre manager, said: ‘Cosham is a bustling, thriving area and hopefully this investment will make it even more popular with residents and visitors alike.

‘The plans we’ve developed should make the High Street area a really nice environment for everyone to enjoy with new trees, seating and wider pavements.

‘Now we need as many people as possible to let us know what they think of the proposals so we can take residents’ opinions into account wherever possible.’

The consultation ends on June 14.

The plans can be viewed at Cosham Library from today.
