BreakingPortsmouth City Council set to buy office complex

Portsmouth City Council is considering purchasing a major office complex in the city.

The authority announced it is looking to acquire the 590,000sqft of office space at the Lakeside North Harbour in Cosham as what it described as a "strategic acquisition, supporting the local economy for the longer term".

A decision on whether the council proceeds with the freehold purchase is set to be made on 17 June

It is vital that we continue to be ambitious on behalf of the people of Portsmouth, and so it is right that the council considers the possibility of purchasing Lakeside as an important strategic site for business and the future of the city."

Portsmouth - 'The dog that didn't bark'

I'm a bit puzzled and confused by it all because nothing really has happened here at all - the council remains hung - the Lib Dems are up one seat, the Tories down one.

All through the campaign people were saying there was this vitriol on the doorstep towards local politicians because of what was happening nationally.

It was thought people would stay at home and the big parties would suffer - but it hasn't happened here.

There have been a lot of local issues people have been able to get their teeth into - the parking scheme and the Victory Energy saga.

To quote local author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his Sherlock Holmes mysteries - perhaps this is a case of the dog that didn't bark.

Lib Dems biggest party in Portsmouth

The Lib Dems are now the largest party in Portsmouth with Gerald Vernon Jackson set to remain as leader.

In his speech he says thanks party workers and says: "people like what we have done - bins, education, youth clubs and parking schemes."
