Portsmouth City Council Coastal Scheme

Thu 14th Feb

Starting this week, public events are being held for two new public consultations where you can help shape the future of one of the city’s most cherished assets.

This Thursday, the Southsea Coastal Scheme team will hold a three-day exhibition at the Coastguard Studio in Clarendon Road, where residents can find out how the designs for new sea defences along 4.5km of seafront have been changed in response to feedback collected last summer. This will be followed by a series of drop-in events at three of the city’s libraries.

The ambition of the scheme is to create new defences that embrace everything we all love about the seafront. The planned works will transform the seafront for future generations, while protecting homes and the heritage that is so important to the people of Portsmouth.

It also aims to stimulate further regeneration in Southsea and create a more vibrant place for businesses, visitors, and residents to thrive.

Don Letts’ reputation has been firmly established in both the film and music world by a substantial body of work from the late 70’s through the 80’s, 90’s and well into the millennium. His work has been exhibited in The Kitchen N.Y.C, The Institute of Contemporary Art, The N.F.T in London and was honored at Brooklyn’s BAM festival and The Milan Film festival. In March 2003 he won a Grammy for his documentary ‘Westway To The World’.

He came to notoriety in the late 70’s as the DJ that single handedly turned a whole generation of punks onto reggae. It was whilst as a DJ at the first punk club ‘The Roxy’ in 1977, that made his first film ‘The Punk Rock Movie’ w/ Sex Pistols, The Clash and many others. This led to a period directing over 300 music videos for an diverse mix of artists ranging from Public Image to Bob Marley.

He then moved into documentary work making films on the likes of Gil Scot-Heron, The Jam, Sun Ra, The Clash and George Clinton. His most recent documentary was for Sir Paul McCartney’s ‘New’ project. Feature films include the legendary Jamaican movie  1997’s ‘Dancehall Queen’.

Along with his autobiography ‘Culture Clash: Dread Meets Punk Rockers’ released in 2007 Don was also the subject of the documentary film ‘Superstonic Sound: The Rebel Dread’ in 2010.

He currently presents a weekly radio show on BBC 6 Music called ‘Culture Clash Radio’ and still DJs nationally and internationally.
