Planning permission for multi-million pound sea defences in Portsmouth has been granted in what has been described as an ‘important milestone’ for the cities flood protection measures.

The planning application for the Southsea Coastal scheme, as well as all listed items and monuments, was discussed yesterday by the planning committee who gave the £131m project the go-head.

Public consultations will continue throughout the engineering design of the scheme and final conditions, including material finishes, road layouts and landscaping, will be agreed by planning committee.

‘This is a great achievement for the scheme and we are pleased to have been granted planning permission,’ said Guy Mason, coastal defence manager at Portsmouth City Council.

‘A lot of hard work has gone into the application and the engagement with statutory consultees and consultations with the public. We are proud of the progress the team has made and look forward to start construction next year.’
