Portsmouth Guildhall

We are your council, here to represent the people of Portsmouth. If you live in the city then you can have your say by electing councillors and asking them to take up issues on your behalf. You can also get involved in your local Neighbourhood Forum as a way of speaking to us about the issues that matter to you.
However, it’s not just residents who have a voice. We work in partnership with as many people, groups and organisations as possible to ensure that everyone involved with the city has an influence on and can make a contribution to your community.
