A set of principles and way ahead have been agreed by full council to guide regeneration proposals for Tipner West. These principles will prioritise the protection of the land south of the firing range while also creating opportunities for new homes and jobs in the maritime sector on the derelict site. Significant land reclamation and the previous masterplan for the site have been ruled out and the council is committed to increasing biodiversity as part of any future development and minimising costs to the council.
A new masterplan for Tipner West will be developed, with residents, businesses and community groups involved throughout the process. The designs will be tested against the agreed principles and the terms of the City Deal funding that was granted to the council by the government to support regeneration in this area.
You can read the report that was presented to councillors on 11 October on the main council website.
