Fareham and Gosport Multi Year Programme

The Fareham and Gosport multi-year programme will help remove barriers to economic growth and respond to the specific connectivity challenges common to most coastal communities The projects funded under this significant programme provide a package of highway infrastructure improvements to remove transport barriers and improve strategic connections to Fareham and Gosport and aims to encourage new investment (for example at the Solent Enterprise Zone) to provide new opportunities for local residents. The programme will also support the delivery of Solent LEP's strategic growth sites including the Enterprise Zone at Daedalus and the Welborne Development.

This investment will create 3000 new jobs in the period to 2021, unlock significant housing and enable 248,000 sq. m of floor space for businesses.
