Southampton City Vision is Southampton City Council’s new Local Plan which, when complete, will set out what development can take place across the city over the next 20 years and beyond. This will have to include finding sites for around 20,000 new homes by 2040, new places where people can work and businesses can run, as well as all the infrastructure and facilities that people need to live and work.
Southampton City Council (SCC) are at the start of the process of developing this new plan and understanding what people need and getting their ideas for the future of the city is critical to the process. SCC are not making any proposals at this stage for specific sites in the city, first they need to understand the needs, priorities and aspirations of people and businesses. SCC are also doing a ‘call for sites’ so if anyone who knows of or owns land/premises that they feel could be suitable for (re)development, they can let SCC know so this can be considered as part of the development of the plan.
