The Southern Gateway is the flagship project of the pdf icon Chichester Vision [2Mb] which looks ahead over the next 20 years to see how the city centre can be enhanced.

It has been identified as a priority through the West Sussex Growth Deal and forms part of the Cabinet Office's One Public Estates  programme.



pdf icon masterplan [3Mb] for the area was adopted in November 2017 as a Supplementary Planning Document.

The area is a key point of access and arrival to our historic city. This opportunity aims to create a vibrant new quarter to drive substantial economic growth and new jobs, improving the quality of the environment for residents, visitors, workers and businesses.

We want to deliver sustainable growth and unlock opportunities for new homes and employment space, as well as preserve and create high value jobs by attracting industries such as the financial; research and development; and digital sectors to this new gateway.

The project will be supported by public funding to aid delivery.
