A report outlining the progress of the controversial £ 1 billion project to create a ‘super peninsula’ at Tipner West will be released in December.
Councilors will receive an update on the Lennox Point project at their plenary council meeting after voting earlier this month to ‘suspend and rethink’ it.
This comes despite the head of Portsmouth City Council saying the program is ‘dead’ due to the level of opposition, casting doubt on its future.

Voting at this month’s meeting demanded it be put on hold to allow for an update on its value to the city.
More than £ 10million has already been spent on crafting development plans which include contentious proposals to reclaim land in the port.
This has generated strong environmental opposition, notably from the RSPB and the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.
An update on the project’s website confirmed that the report requested by councilors will be released for the December plenary council meeting.
He said the report would explain “how the Lennox Point project team sought to present a viable way forward for this difficult and very complex site” and the rationale for its progress.
“The project team is eager to share their report, to answer questions from advisers about the opportunities and constraints at Tipner West, how the Lennox Point proposals seek to maximize opportunities for Portsmouth and how the team can meet their concerns and ambitions. ” he added.
An urban planning file was to be submitted next summer.
