Neighbourhood plan says eastern town and Port Royal should be a multi-use building

Port Royal should be developed into a multi-use area capable of acting as a community events space, the neighbourhood plan says.

The plan includes four policies on eastern town and Port Royal – including the eastern town redevelopment, its access (policy 23), its maritime heritage (policy 24) and community assets (policy 25).

The SVNP plan specifies that any redevelopments in eastern town should retain and/or replace the current buildings, should be flexible multi-use area. This includes acting as community events space, and/or a flexible cultural/performance space, with a bar and/or restaurant.
