PEOPLE from Portsmouth are being urged to register their support for the regeneration of Tipner.
Portsmouth City Council is hoping to get government funding for redeveloping the area, building new homes and creating a new waterside public open space.
But to kick-start the process it needs to build a new junction on the M275 – and this needs government money.
So the council is asking residents to go on the internet and fill in a survey.
Cllr Mike Hancock, the councillor in charge of planning, economic development and regeneration, said: ‘We want Tipner to be a fantastic waterfront area, with new offices, homes and green space. It could be a great boost to our economy and a really impressive gateway to the city.’
The survey can be found by searching for Tipner at portsmouth.gov.uk and paper copies will be at the Central Library in August. The deadline is August 24 and a bid will be submitted in September.
