Here's how to find out more about plans for a car-free community in Tipner West
RESIDENTS will be able to have their say on plans for a 'tremendous' car-free community in the city.
As previously reported Portsmouth City Council is exploring options for a new 4,000 home development in the north of the city, which could be part-built on reclaimed land.
If proposals go ahead it is also hoped the Tipner West site will include an underground 'podium' for car parking and storage, leaving the roads car-free and pedestrian-friendly.
Now, a six week consultation will allow the public to find out more about the plans and give their feedback.
Council leader Councillor Gerald Vernon-Jackson, urged residents to attend the events. He said: 'The details in our plans for Tipner West have further progressed and the project team is very excited to share them with the people of Portsmouth.
'We are going to display information in a visual and interactive way and we are encouraging anyone with an interest in Portsmouth to come and engage with this tremendous development.'
The first event will take place today (Jan 30) at unit 26 in Port Solent from 8am-7pm.
