Whiteley Village

Whiteley Village Stores have now closed and the 20-week demolition programme is complete. Work on the construction phase of the £64m, 300,000sq ft scheme is well under way with a planned opening at the END of May 2013

The new Whiteley Village shopping Park will be designed to attract top tenants to suit market demand, it will have a completely new look including glazed elevations, attractive landscape and public realm providing a vibrant new shopping destination. Take the Video Tour.

Tesco and its car park has remained open during the works. There is a path through from the Meadowside through to Tesco to allow pedestrian access. The Meadowside Leisure Centre has remained open throughout the works. 

Many major retailers are locating in Whiteley after the redevelopment. 70% of the retail floor area has been with "Marks and Spencer" (60,000 sq ft) and "Next" (19,500) sq ft set to become the cornerstones of the new development. H&M (18,200 Sq ft), Boots (12,300 sq ft), JD Sports (6,800 sq ft), Bank (6,300 sq ft), Sports Direct (10,700 sq ft), "Frankie & Benny’s" (4,000 sq ft) and Starbucks (2,500 sq ft) have also signed up. There will be around 50 units for local and national retailers, restaurants and cafés. To put this into perspective Gunwharf Quays is 425,000 sq ft and has 95 stores, 30 bars and restaurants while the M&S store in Fareham Shopping Centre is 24,000sq ft.

There will be 7 retail units located adjacent to the market square. There were more than 50 equiries for these and it is hoped these will be for local shops such as butchers and bakers.  

The New Village will include 242,000 sq ft of retail, 58,000 sq ft of catering and amenities, 1136 free parking spaces and will create 1000 jobs. Its catchment area will be 1.2M people with a potential spending power of £3.1 billion.

Russell Streeter Bootcamp

Join local business owners for an interactive workshop that will give you the skills you need to take your business to the next level. Most business owners I speak to want to grow and develop their businesses. However, many don’t have any definite strategies for achieving this. Yet, as Henry Ford famously said, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” Change can be hard, but you don’t have to do it alone. Here’s what you will get by attending the Boot Camp: - A new approach to marketing your business, which will put you back in control of your destiny; - Powerful business growth advice and strategies, which we will apply to your business during the exercises; - The chance to discuss ideas with other business owners, in a supportive environment; This workshop will be limited to 12 people, so there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
