Game to plan new play area

Have your say

RESIDENTS are invited to approve proposed plans for Somers Town’s £12m hub on Monday.

This will be the first of three public consultations and will be held in Southsea Community Centre from 5pm to 7pm where the public can suggest changes to the 4,000sq metre building.

The building, pictured, is part of Portsmouth City Council’s regeneration project for Somers Town and will host a café, a housing advice centre and a dentist referral service.

The council’s Somers Town regeneration project manager, Launce Morgan, said: ‘The residents of Somers Town have told us over a number of years what they want to achieve through the transformation of the area.

‘These designs reflect the aspirations of the local community and their vision for Somers Town.

‘The three consultation sessions are opportunities for people and stakeholders to have a look at our plans for a landmark building to house quality new community, youth and health centre facilities in the heart of Somers Town.

‘We hope as many people as possible will take this opportunity to share their thoughts on the concept and the design with the architects and members of the Somers Town regeneration project team.’

The next two meetings will be held on Wednesday, June 15 in St Peter’s Church Hall, Fraser Road and on Saturday, June 18 in Wilmcote House community room, Tyseley Road.
