Have your say

THE population of Portsea Island was 207,100 according to the 2010 census.

If, like me, you think that this expansion has gone far enough for such a small city then you need to contact your local councillor or the planning department (planningpolicy@portsmouthcc.gov.uk) quoting ‘New Local Plan.’

Comments close on September 28.

The university said it would curb students bringing their cars here, but then, I gather, found it had no legal right to do so.

We simply don’t have room for more cars. On Thursday morning I saw this university sign describing Portsea and a large part of the city centre as ‘University Quarter.’

It is not – and the time has come to say ‘no more’.
