Future Southampton

📰 Itchen Riverside gets VIP treatment

The River Itchen area is the next big VIP Project in the city to be looked at. VIPs are major projects outlined in our City Centre Master Plan, which is our vision for developing a vibrant and investable city for the future. The River Itchen area is a vitally important hub for the Solent’s marine sector and is a crucial centre for the future economic development of Southampton.
 
The project begins next week with a survey of businesses within the project area. This early research will help to identify and shape the plans for Itchen Riverside. 
 
The object of the survey is to help us understand the type and nature of local businesses and identify their current and future needs. The information gathered from this survey will be used alongside other research and investigations of the area, to ascertain the potential to regenerate the area and to inform future planning policies and employment initiatives. 
 
If businesses would like to be included directly within the survey sample, representatives should contact the council at or 023 8083 4459 to leave their contact information. 
 
Businesses can also complete the Itchen Riverside Survey online. 
 
The research process will close, and all surveys should be completed and submitted by 21 March 2014.
