Reinvigorating the Village Centre

Adapting to change

Footfall is declining in the Portchester in the face of competition from out of town retailing and the internet. We need to address this.

New shops, businesses and housing can all generate increased investment and further improvements to the appearance of buildings. Development can also help in meeting the need for new housing in Portchester.

Our Proposals

We want to encourage both private and public landowners to improve the look and vibrancy of the precinct:

Redevelopment opportunities

We can provide up to 20 new modern sized parking spaces by making a few changes. This would release the area at the back of the Co-op store for potential redevelopment. This might be some commercial space with flats above.

Feedback from the community is that the public toilet, bottle bank and bin area is a priority, and we are looking to address this.
