City centre redevelopment given the ok

The redevelopment of Porthampton’s city centre was approved earlier today by the City Council.


The plans build on the recent development of the Harbourside Centre to help foster the city’s reputation as a leisure destination.


The works will see a redesign of the city’s pedestrian shopping area with a large retail development to be situated on the prior site of the cattle market at the north end of the district as well as new lighting, furniture and sculpture to reflect Porthampton’s rich historic and cultural background.


The development will create numerous new jobs within the city both in the building phase and once the plans are complete.
