The journey so far

Lennox Point is being spearheaded by Portsmouth City Council as part of the city’s regeneration strategy, and is one of the largest regeneration programmes planned for the UK.

It has grown in presence and scale over the years, developing from the initial concepts referred to as Tipner West in 2013, to the exciting new masterplan now known as Lennox Point.

As well as our timeline below, we have an exciting document which outlines our story so far. If you’d like to see this, please email lennoxpoint@portsmouthcc.gov.uk and we’ll send you the document.
