A number of residents have asked what’s been going on at Brunel House at The Hard.
I’ve been following this up with the council on behalf of local people.
The Brunel House site in Portsea is land that the city council has been keen to see improved for a significant time.
A planning application was made some time ago and was submitted to the planning authority but was eventually refused planning permission.
More recently the owner has exercised his right to submit a ‘Prior Notification’ for the conversion of the building into dwellings.
Officers have confirmed that in recent weeks the owner has been stripping the property out in the period before Christmas but there is currently no further work planned.
Watch this space for updates.
