Shaping the Future of Portsmouth – a regeneration strategy for the city
The ‘Shaping the future of Portsmouth’ strategy focuses on delivering future prosperity of the city and has been developed over the past year by the council in consultation with a range of stakeholders including local businesses and residents.
A period of consultation with the public was concluded in December 2010 and the responses received can be seen by opening the document at the foot of this page.
This regeneration strategy was approved by the city council's Cabinet on 10th January 2011.
The strategy, which is available to view below, outlines plans to achieve the vision of the future for the city including supporting business and growth, making it a better place to live and improving its infrastructure.
As well as the extensive local debate, the strategy has been informed by a major economic study carried out in the south Hampshire region, on behalf of the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire.
The strategy looks at how the many strengths of Portsmouth can be developed to ensure that there are good quality jobs in the city, which local people have the skills and opportunities to take up. It targets two key areas:
- Supporting economic growth, innovation and enterprise in Portsmouth
- Enhancing the city’s competitiveness in a regional, national and international field
Employment, Learning & Skills plan
With work at Tipner underway, the city's physical regeneration has already begun, underpinned by a comprehensive delivery plan that will see £1 billion invested in Portsmouth. For the city's residents to fully benefit from this investment and the economic growth and regeneration it will bring, the council and its partners are developing an Employment, Learning & Skills Plan to secure business growth and provide a highly-skilled flexible workforce to fill the jobs that this growth is projected to bring.
For more information on the draft plan and an opportunity to participate in the consultation currently underway, please visit the Employment, Learning & Skills page.
