Havant Borough Council is developing a masterplan for Waterlooville Town Centre. Using an external project team of planners, designers and architects, the masterplan will provide a vision and plan for future regeneration. It will be used to identify key areas of growth, future development and identify improvements to the local economy, town centre precinct and its surrounding areas.

As part of this, we will be running several engagement exercises as it is vital that we hear from as many local people as possible during this process.

We started by holding a series of walking and digital virtual tours of Waterlooville, giving the people who know Waterlooville an opportunity to tell us what they thought it needed to make a brighter and better area for future generations.

This was followed by the Waterlooville Town Centre Masterplan: Festival of Ideas, which took place in January. Thank you to everyone who took part - it was great to see so many local people and stakeholders attend to share their views on the future of the town centre and we received extremely valuable feedback.

Finally, the latest phase of engagement for this project was the Waterlooville Town Centre Masterplan: Gallery and Exhibition, which took place in the vacant Game Unit in the pedestrianised precinct (95 London Road, PO7 7EQ – the same venue as the Festival of Ideas) in mid-March.

The purpose of this event was to showcase the draft content for the Masterplan, provide an opportunity for further feedback on the draft materials, and to discuss any questions with the Project Team.

Thank you to all those who came along and took part - we have a great turn-out and it was wonderful to see those who have engaged at previous stages of the project.
