THE redevelopment of a former prison site will be the topic at a public meeting.

Developers City & Country are having the third in a series of consultation meetings about the future of Kingston Prison in Portsmouth on Tuesday, October 20.

Richard Winsborough, associate director of planning at City & Country, said: ‘Following our latest consultation event in July, which showed local people and stakeholders a number of initial ideas being considered for the site, we have been reviewing the feedback received and developing our proposals for one of the options.

‘Our third event will demonstrate our desired plans and we will have members of the team available to discuss them, alongside a number of display boards.

‘There’s been a fantastic level of public interest in this historic site.’

The meeting will be at the former prison and will run from 3pm to 8pm. For more information call 0808 178 1295.
