Many of the shop fronts in Portchester precinct and along the main pedestrian walkways look outdated. Whilst some businesses have a few tables and chairs outside, more could be done to help create a café culture and add vibrancy to the area.
In order to improve the shopping experience, we would like to:
Work together with local businesses and traders to make changes to the precinct
Engage with key partners to look at how the shop fronts and canopies can be updated and modernised
Some new housing could also help improve the appearance of shop fronts
Introduce more outdoor seating, tables and chairs to make it more vibrant
