For the last decade Southampton has risen steadily through the league tables for growth and has climbed in to the top three cities in the UK for Good Growth for Cities index, published by PwC and Demos, confirming itself as the economic powerhouse of England’s south coast.

Based upon the City Centre Master Plan, the city is undergoing an ambitious scheme of regeneration. At the core of the plan are the Very Important projects (VIPs) which are either completed, underway or in the pipeline. The VIPs are becoming part of Southampton’s new landscape contributing to a vibrant and energetic city centre.

We provide a comprehensive service for businesses considering relocating, expanding or investors seeking commercial development opportunities:

  • Work with developers, investors and occupiers to unlock development sites and opportunities
  • Identify suitable business premises or sites and arrange viewings with commercial agents
  • Provide tailored information on skills, industry strengths, the local economy and living in Southampton and the surrounding area
  • Identify grants and funding and provide support with recruitment and training
  • Organise tours showcasing the city’s offer to investors and businesses

If you want to be part of a successful city, come and talk to our team of experts and we will help you be part of a very successful future.
