‘Streets for People’ Report, March 2019

We’ve published a report, ‘Streets for People’ that sets out local people’s vision for Portsmouth streets as places that are people-friendly and not dominated by cars.

The report is based on comments from local people about their favourite streets, the horrors of others, and ideas for making their neighbourhood streets places where they want to walk, cycle, play, chat and sit.

We’ve passed this report to Portsmouth City Council in order to inform the new City Plan to create a safer and more pleasant city.

‘Walking in Portsmouth’ Report, November 2016

This report summarises comments on walking in Portsmouth made by a broad range of people who live, work, or visit Portsmouth on a regular basis.  The comments were collected by Portsmouth Friends of the Earth (PFOE) in order to help inform a ‘Portsmouth Walking Strategy’.

The comments fall into four broad areas :

  • Improvements to walking routes (including the needs for more signs, trees, seats and lighting)
  • Strategies to reduce and slow motor vehicle traffic (including approaches to parking, bus service improvements, speed reduction and car-free zones)
  • Pedestrian ‘infrastructure’ (including pavements and crossings)
  • Education and enforcement (including parking on pavements, sharing pavement space, dog poo and litter)
