We are delighted that Portsmouth City Councillor Steve Pitt, executive member for economic development will be joining Future Cities Forum's high streets event this month.

The forum discussion will look at the recovery of high streets, town and city centre development post pandemic.

Portsmouth City Council has secured almost £7 million for the transformation of high streets across the city. The £6.9 million from two bids - Commercial Road and Fratton Road - will come from the government's Future High Streets Fund. It will help the change of property use, improve public spaces and allow new businesses to open.
