Portland Works is home to thriving creative and specialised industries, some of whom have been based in the works for over 40 years... A planning application to convert Portland Works into 64 tiny flats has now been submitted... For many this would mean the end of their business and the loss of their skills as it would be prohibitive to relocate their specialist equipment... It would also be the loss of a community of people based in small studios and workshops who 'rub up well together'.
