Concern as Fareham council tax rise soars – again

Have your say

PLANS to change a Southsea street, including removing one-hour parking bays and introducing stone planters, will go on show at a public exhibition next week.

Portsmouth City Council is seeking residents’ views on the proposals for Osborne Road and is holding an exhibition at St Jude’s Church, on Kent Road, between 2pm and 8pm on Monday.

If the plans are approved, the changes will see pavements widened, the bus stop painted, an improved crossing point installed, more seats and new atmospheric lighting.

The project is aimed encouraging walking, cycling and public transport in Southsea.

Some traders have expressed fears that these changes will make parking in Southsea harder and more expensive for their customers.

The Portsmouth City Council plans can be viewed at portsmouth.gov.uk, where an online survey can be completed.

The council would also like to hear residents’ opinions on the pedestrianisation of Palmerston Road.

A mobile exhibition will be in Palmerston Road precinct on Saturday, July 13.

The consultation closes on Wednesday, July 31.
