Waterlooville works continue to progress at Wellington Way as next stage of masterplan set to be unveiled

The early stages of a town centres regeneration continues to progress as residential apartments begin to be built on top of commercial units.

The building work at Wellington Way in Waterlooville town centre is continuing to progress as the first floor residential apartments begin to take shape. The work forms part of the early stages of the towns regeneration project as a masterplan continues to be drafted for the future of the town.

Work on the site started in April 2024 when scaffolding was erected around a small section of shops. That has now extended around a whole row of units in Wellington Way where residential apartments are being constructed on the first floor. As part of the works the commercial units are also being renovated to encourage new businesses to the area.

Planning applications were approved for three blocks in Wellington Way to have 28 one-bedroom apartments and 12 two-bedroom apartments in total. The Waterlooville masterplan continues to be drawn up to regenerate the town and encourage more people to visit the town centre for reasons other than shopping. The residential units are seen as a key step in that direction.

The latest updates on the Waterlooville masterplan are set to be unveiled at a meeting on Wednesday, July 10 between 7pm and 8.30pm at Waterlooville Community Centre. It is a free non ticketed event where the regeneration team will provide updates on their plans and people will be able to provide their thoughts.
