Portsmouth is a Unitary Authority and a key member of the Partnership for South Hampshire (PuSH) that works collaboratively with the boroughs, districts and other cities that make up this vibrant and diverse part of the country.
Partnerships are at the heart of what we do. Working with the PuSH partnership, planners are managing growth and opportunity across the region, and as part of a unitary authority the planners work in tandem with the Highway Authority and access expertise across the full range of local government functions.
Our partnerships tackle the big planning issues in the region and Portsmouth planners are at the heart of this.
Bird Aware Solent is a nationally recognised, award winning mitigation partnership managed from within the Portsmouth Planning Service, supporting the delivery of growth in an area surrounded by protected designated habitat. And the Coastal Partners bring together planning, engineering and project management to deliver flood defence for the wider Portsmouth area.
