Investing in Portsmouth
In Portsmouth we have a heritage of supporting and investing in local business. We do this to encourage local commercial enterprises which in turn help employ local people and hence add to the overall cities community.
Portsmouth is a thriving busy city with quick rail access to London and of course support facilities for importing and exporting materials and finished goods. If you're looking for a base for your business or you're looking to relocate then Portsmouth perhaps offers one of the least expensive and centralise cities in the south of England.
In addition to excellent premises and communications Portsmouth offers new business a wealth of local council grants and governments initiatives to attract businesses to the region and to encourage existing businesses to expand and grow their business within Portsmouth.
In 2012 2013 Portsmouth received EEC funding in the region of £2.4 billion to promote local enterprise and business. Although the majority of the money was geared towards the tourism and transport industries a number of funds and grants were taken up by more modern businesses including digital companies.
Invest in Portsmouth also offers a range of services that can help grow your business. We are looking to engage a system where local businesses can be offered free business advice and tax advice alongside other ways of promoting their business to both the local community and on a more nationwide scale through discounted signage banners, website design and website promotion, advertising both local regional and nationwide and other discounts and coupons that can make promoting an advertising your business less expensive and more effective.

Mortgages? Why not build your own home?
Self Build Mortgages Once you have found your land the next thing that you need is a flexible self build mortgage. There are now mortgages on the market that cater for self building. These mortgages allow you to borrow up to 95% of the land and the build costs. This type of mortgage releases money at the start of each stage of the build so therefore allows good cashflow during the build. So if you are building with a timber frame, the accelerator mortgage releases funds when you need to pay for the timber frame.
Portsmounth is often described as a hidden city, since from most vantage points on the edge of the parish, little of the village of North Boarhunt can be see as its buildings are screened by mature trees such as oaks, alders, and chestnuts. From Nelson's Monument, or anywhere along the top of Portsdown Hill, the view is one of tranquil pastures, fields and forests.
More like a village than a city
The lack of large housing estates, substantial housing or industrial development greatly contributes to the appeal of the village. However, the village also enjoys the proximity of large cities and their amenities without losing its strong rural identity and sense of community.
The rural setting also allows stunning views of the night skies. This is mainly due to the low level of light pollution thanks to the low population density and strong local resistance to the use of excessive street lighting.
