Coronavirus: council service information and advice

Information about changes to council services as a result of coronavirus

Landowners, developers and agents with brownfield sites in Portsmouth that could be allocated for development in the future are being asked to get in touch with Portsmouth City Council.

Information is needed on brownfield sites which could be developed up until 2036 in preparation for a new draft Local Plan for Portsmouth. Submitted sites will be considered for future development allocations through the Local Plan process.  

The council's planning policy team are particularly interested to hear about any brownfield sites becoming available which are:

  • able to accommodate five or more new homes, or
  • 2 hectares or larger, and which are suitable for other uses such as employment, retail and leisure.

All sites submitted will be assessed for their suitability for allocation in the Local Plan and Brownfield Land Register. Submission of a site does not automatically mean that it will be suitable for development.

Councillor Steve Pitt, Portsmouth City Council's Cabinet Member for culture and city development, said: "We want to hear from anyone with a brownfield site which could become available for development between now and 2036. Please get in touch with the planning policy team who can then assess if the site is suitable."

To suggest a site please complete the call for sites suggestion form before 8 November 2019 at
