Our forward-thinking approach to regenerating the city centre focuses on the needs of current and future generations. From behavioural changes in how we spend our time and money to the environmental changes around us, the flexibility to evolve with the times is crucial.

We are working together with our communities to create an attractive, vibrant, and engaging place, with a diverse offer of things to do and see for our local communities and visitors. We also want to create easy and safe navigation of the city centre with better connectivity and better options for sustainable travel.

The north of the city centre will see some of the biggest changes. The proposals include new homes, a large public green space alongside space for new community facilities, retail, hospitality and leisure uses, as well as new walking and cycling routes. The development is designed to breathe new life into the area and support the council’s wider revitalisation plans for the whole city centre and aspirations for sustainable communities, better connectivity and greener travel.

These improvements will complement plans already in place as part of the South East Hampshire Rapid Transit projects.
