LENNOX POINT
PORTSMOUTH

Lennox Point is an ambitious and innovative development proposal for a new, car-free, waterfront neighbourhood in Portsmouth.

It offers an opportunity to make a step change for the city of Portsmouth; providing homes and employment for local people and bringing investment into the city, to help build a sustainable new community.

It will have a leading marine employment and green marine technology hub (Phoenix Quay) that will reinforce Portsmouth’s place in the heart of the Solent maritime economy. And, it will be home to an environmentally-conscious and mixed community who will benefit physically and mentally from living and working at Lennox Point.

And this isn’t about opportunities far into the future. In designing and delivering Lennox Point, we will create thousands of jobs and apprenticeships, and will support economic recovery in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are five fundamental Design Principles sitting behind the proposals for our masterplan:
