Area action plans (AAP) are development plan documents that focus on a specific location or an area subject to conservation or significant change, including major regeneration or growth areas.
Southsea forms part of our three-centre retail strategy, which also focuses on the city centre and Gunwharf Quays. The aim is to promote the city as a retail destination with three different shopping experiences, highlighting the individual role of the three destinations and what they each offer.
This area action plan has been prepared to address the decrease in footfall that Southsea has experienced in recent years and the likely impact that significant retail proposals in the city centre will have on Southsea. It sets a vision for the town centre’s future role and sets policies to guide its development.
