Centre for Cities published an independent report which looks at how the Solent LEP and PUSH can support economic growth in light of City Deal negotiations and their commitment to develop and new strategic plan for local growth in the Solent area. The report reflects on the successes and strong history of partnership working in the Solent area, recognising however that more needs to be done in these challenging economic times if the area is to ‘punch above its economic weight’ and succeed in its ambition to safeguard and create more jobs and homes.

In 2012, PUSH, in partnership with the Solent LEP and the University of Portsmouth, commissioned a highly significant and independent report looking at the Socio-Economic Impact Assessment of the Portsmouth Naval Base. You can read the Full Report here or the Executive Summary here.
