Harvester, 15 The Boardwalk, Port Solent, Portsmouth PO6 4TP, UK
Port Solent is a mixed-use development, with housing, commercial, leisure and boat related support services, set around a marina basin with 1,000 berths. Built on a reclaimed landfill site and located immediately alongside a SSSI and Ramsar designation. It is an attractive harbour setting created by the combined use of planning policy and implementation tools together with land ownership powers.
The walk will be led by Ron Tate, who worked for Portsmouth City Council on the delivery of the project. Ron will strike a balance between exploring the planning issues and solutions to problems raised, and allowing participants to simply enjoy a long summer’s evening in this picturesque setting.
Accessibility: The walk will be at a pace to suit everyone (full disability access is available) and will last approximately 1-1.5 hours.
Meeting: An area has been reserved from 5.45pm at the Harvester for attendees to congrugate and enjoy an arrival tea or coffee.
After the walk, a waterside area will be reserved at ‘The Alec Rose Bar’ for those wishing to tarry with for a drink and/or food.
