Portsmouth City Council is seeking to expand its planning and regeneration team in order to support the city’s regeneration plans.

According to the authority, Portsmouth’s pipeline of regeneration schemes amount to a total investment of £1.8bn, including the redevelopment of the city centre, a renewal programme on its seafront, a new transport interchange and a new business park.

The city’s plans were given a boost when a deal with central government was announced in November that saw the Ministry of Defence hand its Tipner site to the council.

As a result, the authority is seeking to appoint an economic regeneration manager, as well as an implementation officer to work within its city development and cultural services department.
