Hayling Island seafront regeneration

The future of Hayling seafront

The council is looking at the future role of Hayling seafront for visitors, residents and businesses.

We have worked with Hemingway Design to develop a feasibility study for the regeneration of four sites at Southwood Road, Eastoke Corner, Beachlands and West Beach. Thank you to those of you who responded to the online survey last year which informed the feasibility study.

History of the project

There have been various council and developer ideas to improve and regenerate the beautiful Hayling Island seafront. There has been limited progress and many of these ideas have largely remained on the drawing board.

These include:

Hayling Seafront remains a popular destination for all ages to enjoy water sports, its natural environment and clean and safe beaches.

As part of the council’s regeneration objectives, Hayling Seafront is a specific focus in order to sustain it as a destination for all.

This will be coordinated with the potential developments around the island that may emerge in the Local Plan.

The critical aspect of the Local Plan work is the need to plan for supporting infrastructure, particularly in terms of transport.
