River Itchen Consultation

Who is this for?

Groundwork South are keen to invite members of the public to take part in a public consultation concerning changes to the River Itchen at Riverside Park, Southampton.

Following a structural survey of the sluice gate near Woodmill, it has been identified that vital improvement works need to take place. Rather than simply replacing the structure, the Environment Agency are keen to explore all potential opportunities to develop a solution that both tackles the sluice gate challenge, increases the recreational value of the area and improves the biodiversity value of the Itchen and Riverside Park.

The consultation is to be split into two phases, with Phase 1 looking to capture people's thoughts and opinions on various concept ideas and Phase 2 looking to build upon this feedback and propose more detailed options.

Phase 1 of the consultation has just launched and it’s a great time to get involved in the project and have your say on shaping the future improvements.

All the information including concept options and a link to the survey can be accessed from :
