Abstract

The findings of an international design research programme, the Portsmouth Elephant Cage (2016-17) are summarised in this report. This programme evaluated and explored the current proposals for sea defences along Portsmouth's Southsea frontage, and investigated a number of significant issues.
An alternative design, proposed in this report, illustrates a strategic approach that can further enhance the value, amenity, environment and ecology of Southsea common, whilst delivering a more sustainable future Portsmouth.
The report recommends actions forward to address the apparent shortfalls with the existing proposals.
