Portsmouth Seafront To Get New Places To Eat

There could soon be some new additions to Portsmouth seafront - the council is offering five sites for lease for food or leisure outlets.

Located near Canoe Lake, the five sites available for recreational and catering opportunities, include a picturesque rose garden building, grass tennis courts with pavilion, hard ball courts, and two former bowls pavilions and greens.

The council is currently testing the market for interest, with all business suggestions subject to planning permission.

Councillor Lee Hunt, Portsmouth City Council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Sport said:

"Independent businesses are thriving along Portsmouth’s seafront and there’s an appetite for more.

"With a £1bn city regeneration strategy underway we're on track to deliver a world-class waterfront for our residents and visitors to enjoy.

"A recent report by a catering specialist identified that this area was underserved for food and drink outlets.

"We are currently testing the market and urging businesses, individuals and social enterprises, who are interested in this exciting chance to transform an area which attracts over four million visitors year, to get in touch."

The closing date for submissions of interest is 23 August.
