The Hotwalls Project, Portsmouth

In 2014 the City Council secured £1.75 million from the Coastal Communities Fund to refurbish the vacant buildings at Point Battery for artist-maker studios and a high quality cafe.

 This regeneration has transformed a dusty and largely forgotten area by the old military barracks into a buzzing creative quarter with 13 working artists’ studios. The Council estimates that the Hotwalls project has created approximately 14 permanent jobs, attracting 60,000 extra visitors to the area every year, and is supporting the surrounding business and visitor economy. Stephen and his associate, Finella Devitt, wrote the initial business plan for this transformative project, and associate Mary Nightingale wrote the catering strategy.
