Hi Nasher and thanks for the thought.

However, Google Earth The Camber and you will see that it is an area ripe for development. The sad thing is tha even if BAR don't develope the site (Can't see that happening), it is now on the PCC (porstmouth city council) radar and they will look to develop it sometime soon. The best outcome would be for BAR to secure their tenure (they are committing to 3 Americas Cup Challenges) and stop a housing/wind farm development.

I can't think it's a bad thing for the area but hope they accommodate the leisure users like yourself.

Regards

Steve

Had a walk around the Camber last night. I see they have closed off the car park already and have the area that Steve will be moving to cordoned off.

Are there any plans to look over, would be interesting to see what the layout will be like? I'm guessing that fishing along the edge of the Camber will be stopped, would be a shame as I have many happy memories trying for Bass along that stretch.

Hi Andy,

The plans for the site (and masses of other interesting stuff) are available to view on the PCC website. It takes a bit of finding but if you can get to the "planning applications" page and search "camber", you can hours of fun looking at all the visuals.

Once the building is up, I know of no plans to restrict public access to the quayside (save for when craning and lifting operations are in progress). So hopefully you can fish, stroll, walk your dog, etc as much as you ever could.

Regards

Steve

Do you think that PCC have deliberately created a crap website?

Oh Man that bad news . I always use camber and the trailer park. !!
GUTTED as its the closest place to launch, park the trailer and park the car. !! I live in Northamptonshire so its a good run but doable.

The planning site is not that bad..... try the link... I must admit that having all that space now it will be a shock when its finished ..... It will be all very close together with narrow pats for cars and pedestrians to get through which is a shame as it currently is such a lovely spot but then again change might be good ..... One question though .... Are these flats next to the spice Island still in plan ? http://idox.portsmouth.gov.uk/online...ENT-671951.pdf

Write in!

We all need to send a note on this against the planning application, asking for trailer parking. These planning authorities just count the number of objections, so please write in. Camber is my favourite launch site and I would be sorry to lose it. You only have one day to do it!

Bucksribster,

To the best of my knowledge, I would say the following: -

You or anyone else are free to object. However, be aware that objecting on the grounds that you will lose a free trailer park will not be counted as it is not a valid planning objection. PCC planning committee don't just count the numbers of objectors/supporters (for and against) but summarise objections based on their validity (ie. 10 object on these grounds, 12 object on these ground, etc). An invalid objection (ie. "I don't like it because I'll lose my trailer parking") will not be counted.

So maybe you are wasting your time? But as I say, I support your right to object.

Regards

Steve

Sorry, also forgot to say that as of this weekend, it is likely that at least 40% of the existing trailer park and most of the car park will be closed whilst building work takes place.
