South East

The Gosport Coastal Community Team is located within the borough of Gosport in Hampshire.

Our specific area of focus extends to 130 hectares and includes a significant frontage along Portsmouth Harbour, a number of waterfront development sites, three marinas, residential neighbourhoods, the Town Centre and main public transport interchange, together with a number of important civic, cultural and community buildings.

The Team’s core members are drawn from:

  • Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership

  • Gosport Borough Council

  • Gosport Town Centre Business Partnership

  • Gosport Marine Scene CiC

  • Gosport Voluntary Action

  • Hampshire County Council

  • Hampshire Cultural Trust

  • Tourism South East

  • Businesses from the Waterfront and Town Centre area


Our work will address community needs, make use of assets and take advantage of opportunities based upon four connected key themes:


  • Social, community development and skills

  • Coastal environment and urban heritage

  • Business growth and jobs

  • Inward investment and land use
