Inland Homes has submitted plans for the regeneration of the site of the former Southampton town depot, now known as Chapel Riverside.

The 8.9 acre prime site is located on the River Itchen, close to Ocean Village.  Inland has submitted proposals for a comprehensive mixed-use riverside destination with about 400 residential properties, marine based employment space and improved public access to the waterfront via a riverside walkway.

Plans for the transformation of the site include 300m of river flood defences, the reconstruction of a new underground surface water storage tank for Southern Water and full archaeological investigations of the former Chapel of the Holy Trinity, dating from before 1217AD, as well as a mediaeval mill and Saxon burial ground on the site.

Inland was appointed as Development Partner for Southampton City Council in December last year after signing an exclusive agreement for the redevelopment of the site.

The settlings of both the Cross House and American Wharf near to Chapel Riverside will be improved as part of the proposed scheme, which also features a new square with cafes, restaurants and shops as well as spaces for retained and enhanced marine industry and activities.

Development of the Chapel Riverside site is anticipated to start in 2017 with completion expected in 2022.
