We are now undertaking a specific consultation on the future of Tipner and Horsea. This goes further than the consultation in 2017 as it describes an option at the west and south of Tipner for land reclamation from Portsmouth Harbour. 

This option could make the most of the opportunity at Tipner, but needs to be carefully considered given the challenges, including the sensitive ecology of Portsmouth Harbour. Because of this, we need to gather views before the Plan is finalised. Full details are set out in the consultation document.


To explain the consultation document we will be holding two exhibitions in the areas closest to the Tipner and Horsea area:

  • Mountbatten Centre Function Room, Alex Way PO2 9QA

Wednesday 27 February, 2:00 -8:00pm

  • Port Solent Boardwalk, Water level, unit adjacent to Pizza Express, PO6 4TP

Saturday 9 March, 12:00 - 4:00pm


The consultation document and response forms are available from the civic offices, as well all the libraries across the city, community centres and housing offices.

We would prefer you to respond using the online survey, but if you prefer you can download the response form and email us your comments to planningpolicy@portsmouthcc.gov.uk or post them to: Planning Policy, Cultural Services and City Development, Portsmouth City Council Civic Offices Guildhall Square Portsmouth PO1 2AU.

The closing date for comments is Monday 25 March 2019.

In addition to the consultation on Tipner and Horsea, we are also publishing a range of technical evidence studies which have been prepared as background to the Plan. Full details are available on the Local Plan webpage.
