RESIDENTS, businesses and organisations have more time to comment on a proposed new blueprint to redevelop Gosport town centre and waterfront.

The deadline for comments was originally Tuesday, September 19, but it has now been extended until midnight on Friday, September 29.

Cllr Stephen Philpott, chairman of the council’s economic development board, said: “It’s been good to see local people taking notice of the supplementary planning document, and a lively debate getting under way.

“We really do want to hear people’s views, for or against our ideas, because this will help us produce the final document.”

The document is only a draft and will be finalised once all comments have been received.
