How can Southampton maximise its good growth potential?

Things are looking up for Southampton. A third place ranking in Demos-PwC’s Good Growth for Cities 2017 index, £150+m of road and cycle infrastructure investment planned and the opening of the five-star, super-yacht inspired hotel with restaurant and bar.

So how can Southampton ensure it takes advantage of these opportunities and maximise its potential for good growth? And just how far will public sector investment go to answering Southampton’s age-old infrastructure challenges and help unlock new opportunities in the city?
