Coronavirus: council service information and advice

Information about changes to council services as a result of coronavirus

Plans to develop Tipner West will be discussed at MIPIM, the world's leading property market event. Due to the current coronavirus situation, the event has been adapted to a series of online, live presentations this week, and will feature a panel of experts including Natascha McIntyre Hall, assistant director of strategic developments at Portsmouth City Council.

Industry professionals from around the world have registered to tune in and will get the chance to hear more about the innovative plans for Tipner West when the event focuses on the future needs for housing.

Councillor Gerald Vernon-Jackson, Leader of Portsmouth City Council said, "This is a superb opportunity to speak to an international audience about Tipner West and fly the flag for Portsmouth. We want to present our plans to investors, developers and other experts in the industry who could potentially work with us towards the delivery of this enormous project."

Natascha McIntyre Hall, assistant director of strategic developments said, "Promoting inclusivity, health and wellbeing is of paramount importance to us and we passionately believe it should be at the heart of a sustainable community.

We will be sharing our innovative plans to create a car free place, addressing air quality, whilst improving safety and accessibility for all. People will be better connected to each other and to their natural green and blue environments."

This presence at MIPIM follows the recent news that the Tipner West project has been approved by the Department for International Trade. This means that the project can now be promoted to international investors.

Tipner West is a £1bn+ project of huge scale that will create marine employment and approximately 4,000 homes, supported by community, leisure and retail facilities. The project remains on schedule to submit planning application in 2022 and start work on site in 2023.
