Media enquiries

Portsmouth International Port is part of Portsmouth City Council. The council’s duty media officer is the first point of contact for any enquiries from the media.

Contact us by email at or by telephone on 023 9268 8073. We are open from 8.30am until 5pm Monday to Friday. The council does not have an out-of-hours press office.

Our policy for dealing with the media

Our corporate communications team is the first port of call for all media enquiries.

We will either respond to your enquiry direct, or arrange interviews with councillors and officers for you.

Our media policy is to be:

  • open, honest, transparent and proactive
  • helpful to the media in facilitating photographic opportunities, interviews and other reasonable requests

Our corporate communications team will:

  • respond as quickly and effectively as possible to your enquiry
  • promote our brand and reputation
  • abide by data protection and other laws concerning the rights of our residents, and our staff as employees
  • respect the confidential nature of information which is retained by the council on individual cases or which is commercially sensitive
