Press Release

19 May 2016

Work gets underway on vision to transform Portchester District Centre

Fareham Borough Council is beginning work that will inform a vision for the future of Portchester District Centre. 

We want to strengthen the District Centre and the vision will aim to both encourage a range of shops and leisure facilities to meet the needs of a modern community, and to foster an evening economy.  We will also need to consider possible options for housing in the centre.

Before commencing this work, we need to understand how the District Centre is being used at the moment.  The first area we will consider is existing car parking arrangements as clearly it is important to ensure there will be enough parking for the retail outlets.

We have commissioned Alpha Parking to carry out a survey on our behalf to identify parking patterns of those using the car park.

Executive Member for Planning and Regulation, Cllr Keith Evans said: "The surveys being carried out will help ensure that we understand the needs of the car park users and will allow us to ensure we continue to provide adequate parking provision for the retail outlets as part of our vision for the future of the District Centre."

Consultants carrying out the survey work will be wearing hi-visibility clothing and carry an Alpha Parking badge.  They will not collect any information that can be used to identify individual cars or owners when doing the work.  

The Council intend to consult on a draft vision for the future of the District Centre in the autumn.
