The opportunity for Gosport to become a driving force in both the Solent and UK economy has been set out in a report, published by the Solent LEP.


The LEPs Gosport Infrastructure Investment Plan identifies the economic infrastructure investments which will enable the development and evolution of Gosport as a world-class global hub for marine and maritime activity.

Through developing the area as a ‘First Port of Call’ for business, the LEP hopes to secure a more self-sufficient economy with a larger employment base and a broader range of job opportunities for Gosport residents.

Opportunities identified as key investment sites in the investment plan include Gosport Waterfront,  Fort Blockhouse, Royal Clarence Yard, Haslar Immigration Removal Centre, Royal Hospital Haslar and others.

An executive summary of the Gosport Infrastructure Investment Plan is available here.
