Who is looking at the options for the site?
A team from the council’s strategic developments team is responsible for looking at the options for the site. The council leads a team of experts including, engineers, architects, ecologists, marine and planning consultants. The team’s findings have been shared with members of the council and key stakeholders, such as Natural England, the Environment Agency and DEFRA.
A number of focus groups, roadshows and consultations have also taken place in recent years to speak to residents and businesses about plans for the site. The council’s team is also in contact with the RSPB, the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust and heritage groups about the future of Tipner West.
