Good News

Hi,

I've just taken part in a site meeting with various council "big-wigs" where the topic of trailer parking was discussed - and I mentioned the comments made on RIBnet.

I can say, that providing nothing changes, there will be provision of a trailer park just next to the slipway (and I didn't hear anyone mention charging for the privilege).

From discussion I would expect it to be of similar size to the current one.

I can't say it's definite (as it's not my decision), but if I was a betting man, my money would be on it!

Regards

Steve

Well done for representing us.

I did pop down yesterday for a walk and dropped in to see you but was told you weren't around.

Obviously it was a bit of a shock to see the whole of the car park fenced off, with just a few parking spaces where you probably shouldn't be parking.

It's a bit tight for your big lift at the moment isn't it

I watched your guys put a couple of RIBs in and liked the way the bow of the larger one had to be lifted up over the Bridge Tavern outbuildings to get around the corner.

I can't imagine what a disruption it is to yourselves, R&M etc at such a crucial and busy time in the year.

I hope it all goes well.

Nasher.

Cheers for the suppot guys! I'm not really responsible for what's going on, but I would like to see the slipway kept alive and that involves parking for cars and trailers.

It seems that BAR and the council "get it" and will try and sort out a solution to suit everyone.

I sincerely hope the current plans to provide a free trailer park for slipway users come to fruition. If I have any say (and it's limited) I will support it.

Hope to be able to report more good news soon!

Steve

[QUOTE=Dry Run;622889]Hi,

I've just taken part in a site meeting with various council "big-wigs" where the topic of trailer parking was discussed - and I mentioned the comments made on RIBnet.

Would this be the same Council "Big Wigs" that now have no say in the matter due to a change of Leadership? This entire situation has been handled so badly it is in danger of becoming another Portsmouth unfinished project. And,no one banked on pissing Malcom Hill off !!!

Hi Alan,

Malcolm Hill is a non-elected, self-appointed person with no responsibility to anyone. Whilst he may be the "mouthpiece" for a few disgruntled "nimby's" he is not speaking for Old Portsmouth and certainly not for Portsmouth in general. However, he is entitled to his opinion.

the new leader of PCC was fully involved in the BAR project and it has "cross-party" support. So no problem with the current administration being on-side.

Moving on from politics, I would like to inform evryone that as of today, the car park and the current trailer park are closed.

If you really have to launch from there, speak to me and I'll help out as best I can. my number is 07899 075313.

The slipway is open, the Bridge tavern is open and the waterside parts remains unaffected. Unfortunately, work to remove lamp posts, diconnect electricity, groundworks for the new dry stack and fencing works mean that the whole carpark area is a "no go".

If you have any specific questions you can PM me or give me a call.

Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.

Regards

Steve

Steve... it will hopefully all be ready soon which gives customers a great facility to launch from. I think we all hope BAR will pick Portsmouth as its a great brand which belongs here. .. everybody should stay supportive on this.. good luck !

So at the moment there is no where there to park and no where to put a tailer?

FFS! I use this place all the time. Kids love it as its only 2hrs from home.

So currently can we launch, park car and trailer?

Hi,
I'm afraid it's a bit of a mess at the moment and likely to stay the way for the immediate future (until BAR's building is erected). There is parking to be had, in both East Street and the Broad Street car park, but the main East Street Car park is full of holes and fenced off.

It's not my place to say, but there are no parking officers down here now (no car park) so providing you are not blocking anything in you can probably get away with parking your trailer in the road.If in doubt ask one of the KB Sstaff who may be able to help.
