Investment of over £5.6M set to open up coastal development on Southampton Water
Solent LEP has made an investment of over £5.6M capital funding to open up part of the coast at Fawley in the New Forest.
The money has been awarded to Hampshire County Council towards major improvements to the A326, the key road linking Southampton and Fawley, where there are plans to transform the old power station site into a thriving residential and commercial waterside community.
The A326 is the key corridor serving the Waterside Peninsula which accommodates 70,000 people and its upgrade will support our strategic goal for the region by accelerating the Fawley Waterside development. The transformational impact that the scheme will have makes it important for the region, especially at a time when a proactive road to recovery post the Covid-19 pandemic is needed.
