View 02

Plans to revamp Southampton's waterfront with a major mixed-use scheme have taken a leap forward with a planning application for the £400m development being submitted.

The Royal Pier Waterfront development will include more than 700 new apartments, a 500,000 sq ft office development, up to 50 new shops, and waterside restaurants, cafes and bars.

It will also incorporate a 250-bed hotel and a large casino, subject to licensing, with leisure and entertainment facilities.

The vision for the development promises "to deliver the most atmospheric urban waterfront experience on the South Coast" and will give "unprecedented access to the city's water-side" and celebrate its "unique heritage links with land, sea and sky".

The scheme will also involve expanding Mayflower Park, site of the PSP Southampton Boat Show, and the creation of a large monument to Southampton's famous Spitfire aeroplane.
