THE site of a new housing development in Portsmouth has been opened.

The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Councillor Frank Jonas declared the land next to The Harbour School, in Sundridge Close, Cosham – where PMC Construction and Radian are building 46 homes – open during a sod-cutting ceremony.

Local school children were invited to the event, as were apprentices who have been employed by PMC Construction to help with the project.

Councillor Steven Wiley, cabinet member for housing, said: ‘This development will provide a pleasant community for the families of Portsmouth. We desperately need more family homes.’
