Inland Homes has received a resolution to grant outline planning approval for regeneration of the site of the former Southampton town depot, now know as Chapel Riverside. 

The 8.9 acre prime site is located on the River Itchen and close to Ocean Village. 

Inland's proposals feature a comprehensive mixed-use riverside destination with 457 residential properties, marine based employment space and improved public access to the waterfront via a riverside walkway.

The scheme will include a mix of heights and building types.  The settings 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.

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 medieval mill and Saxon burial ground on the site.

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