South Coast Development Conference

Tuesday, 8th September 2020 0900hrs – 1430hrs

Driving Economic Growth on the South Coast – With Developments Totalling £20bn+ To Be Discussed

With so much interest in investing and developing across the region we’re hosting this event to bring the civic and business leaders together.

Projects to be discussed include:

* St Modwen’s new industrial developments* Proposed 23-storey tower in Southampton Marina
* BCP Council’s 18 focus development sites* £100m energy project at Portland Port
* Portsmouth Water’s £100m reservoir * New garden community close to Basingstoke
