Coronavirus: council service information and advice

Information about changes to council services as a result of coronavirus

We have been awarded £214,515 from the Emergency Active Travel Fund to help improve cycling and walking in Portsmouth in response to the pandemic.

This funding is for temporary changes that must made quickly. For each project, we will contact people in the area ahead of the project going in to inform them of the scheme.

Due to the emergency nature of the projects, normal consultation process is not required. However, we will make sure people are informed and comments will be welcomed so that alterations can be made where possible.

The projects are regularly reviewed in line with changes in government guidance so that the temporary measures can be altered at the appropriate time.

If you have any comments or would like to find out more, please email EATF@portsmouthcc.gov.uk
