Business plan


The landscape within which PfSH operates has changed dramatically over the last decade. The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is now well established and is driving initiatives in areas previously tackled by PfSH. In addition, the abolition of regional planning heralds an enhanced role for the partnership in facilitating strategic planning at sub-regional level.

In response to these changes, PfSH reviewed its role and governance arrangements. The conclusions of that review provided the foundation for our Partnership for South Hampshire Business Plan 2021-2025 which sets out the focus of our work for the next few years.

The Business Plan has three main purpose

  • to demonstrate the ambitious vision that PfSH has for South Hampshire and the steps we are taking to deliver it
  • to demonstrate how PfSH will be working with its partners
  • to encourage investment in South Hampshire by the public and private sectors

The plan is considered a ‘living document’. It addresses the evolving national and regional policy context in line with an evidence based approach necessary to inform decisions. Our intention to undertake a periodic review of the plan as and when necessary will ensure a robust and structured framework for developing our theme based work programme.
