• Planning Application: Cumberland Service Station

    A planning application has been made to convert the Cumberland Service Station on Eastney Road into a convenience store.

    This would involve extending the current building to enclose virtually all of the area currently covered by the canopy. The current proposals include:

    • 279m2 retail shop
    • 10 customer parking spaces (+2 staff spaces)
    • No delivery yard – lorries delivering to the shop would stop on Eastney Road.

    Over the next week I will be visiting homes around the Eastney Road area to talk to people about the proposals and see if there are any specific concerns which I can pass on to the council.

    Formal representations on the plans can also be made to Portsmouth City Council by email to:
