South Coast Development Conference | Event

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

The inaugural South Coast Development Conference is set to burrow into the biggest challenges and major opportunities across the South Coast – with a big focus on driving investment, development and regeneration across the region. It’s a genuinely exciting period for the South Coast – and we’ve seen that through numerous sold-out events in the likes of Southampton, Brighton and Bournemouth over the past few years. With so much interest in investing and developing across the region we’re hosting this event to bring the civic and business leaders together. New infrastructure is planned, major brownfield sites are being regenerated, new towns are being created and regeneration is driving growth and we’ll discover it all. View Agenda >

  • Ikea’s desire to enter the housing market in the region
  • 16 new development sites in Bournemouth
  • £1bn Tipner village proposed by Portsmouth Council
  • New leisure and hotel schemes in THAT Group’s pipeline
