Give your views about the future of Southsea

OPINIONS are being sought on Southsea seafront to help shape future improvements.

Portsmouth City Council is carrying out a survey seeking views on elements including special events, food outlets and barbecues.

Results will be used to understand how people use the various areas that make up the seafront and what changes can be made to enhance people’s enjoyment of them.

The survey covers the seafront promenade, beach, Southsea Common, Castle Field, Canoe Lake and West Battery, known as the home of the bandstand.

Councillor Linda Symes, the council’s cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport, said: ‘The seafront is often referred to as though it is one consistent area but in fact there are a variety of spaces which people use in a lot of different ways.

‘We want to find out how people use those different areas so we can make sure everyone gets maximum enjoyment from the wonderful facilities we have.’

The survey is open until the end of August and can be picked up at all council museums and libraries as well as a selection of Southsea attractions.
