We are preparing for a city centre public consultation over the coming months. The public consultation will be an opportunity for people to find out more about regeneration plans for the whole city centre, as well as the proposals for city centre north, ask questions and leave feedback.
We want to hear from as many people as possible, from local residents and community groups to businesses and visitors.
A greener city centre
A huge thank you to everyone who came along to our green-themed public drop-in event in Cascades shopping centre, on 4 February.
We wanted to know what YOU think about a greener city centre and we had some very positive and interesting conversations with a wide range of people. We have listened to your comments and pleased to share the results with you. Please click on the event summary below.
The green-themed event focused on several council projects that are working towards a greener, more sustainable future for the city centre. As well as the city centre north project team colleagues from energy services, the South East Hampshire Rapid Transit scheme, green and healthy streets, waste and recycling, and public health team took part in the event.
There were some planting activities and grow-at-home kits available for children courtesy of Matt Underwood from Landport Community Garden. Andy Ames from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust spoke to people about biodiversity and why it is important to the city centre.
