Project success: Approval for new VIVID Housing development

03.03.2023 1 min read

We are delighted to hear the news that approval has recently been granted by Portsmouth City Council for the new VIVID Housing development called Victory Quay, formerly known as Tipner East.

The site is significant for the city of Portsmouth, as it will provide 835 new homes for current and future residents, along with commercial, social, and recreational facilities, and new green spaces.

The Proposed Development will regenerate and remediate this brownfield site to create a vibrant waterfront community. The designs prioritize sustainability, ecology, and landscaping, with a focus on enhancing the waterfront promenade for all future residents.  A large portion of the site is designated for green open spaces, increasing biodiversity and ecological benefits, and encouraging a happy and healthy environment in which to live.

Furthermore, the development will improve connectivity between the north of Portsmouth and the rest of the city.

Temple coordinated the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and prepared the socio-economic, air quality, noise and vibration, and climate change ES chapters as well as the Health Impact Assessment submitted to support the planning submission.

Congratulations to PMC Construction, HGP Architects, EcoSupport, and IJLA on the amazing design and we look forward to seeing the transformation of this site.
