Following three stages of public consultation City & Country has submitted plans for the restoration and redevelopment of Kingston Prison. The submission to Portsmouth City Council includes plans for 230 new homes and a café in the Grade II listed Gatehouse.
In developing the proposals City & Country met with thousands of local residents, elected representatives and community organisations who provided feedback on potential uses for the listed buildings and new development. Following the latest stage of public consultation the proposed number of homes has been reduced from 280 to 230 and the addition of a café in the Gatehouse will ensure local residents are able to enjoy the open space and range of gardens.
Richard Winsborough, Associate Director (Planning) at City & Country, said:
“Submitting our application to Portsmouth City Council is an exciting step for the future of this fascinating site. The heritage buildings and new build will deliver 230 new homes alongside a café and gardens creating a vibrant and welcoming development.
The amount of interest in the restoration of the listed buildings has been incredible and we appreciate all the time the local community has given to be involved in our consultation.”
Following the submission City & Country will hold an information session for local residents and interested parties, inviting them to view the submitted proposals and to find out how to comment on the application.
