Woolston Shipyard

The Woolston Shipyard development is located in Southampton, on the eastside of the River Itchen, on a 12 hectare brownfield site previously used as a ship building yard. The site was purchased by the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA), a government funded agency responsible for economic and social development in the region. The surrounding area of Woolston, a run down part of the city, is a predominantly suburban district, with a mix of terraced, semi-detached and detached two-storey dwellings that will significantly benefit from the regeneration of the shipyards.
