Active Pompey Neighbourhoods (APN) aim to develop quieter, safer and greener neighbourhoods where walking and cycling take priority over motor vehicles. An area in central Southsea was selected to be Portsmouth’s first APN as a response to local people’s concerns about speeding, congestion and anti-social driver behaviour.
The Council held an information consultation in the Autumn of 2022 asking residents opinions on how the council could improve their roads, and what would encourage more walking and cycling. The Council also undertook speed and volume traffic surveys.
Using this information designs have been developed for specific roads which address speeding, congestion and anti-social driver behaviour. This consultation sought feedback on these designs from people who live and visit the area.
