Welcome

CHammond.jpgThank you for taking the time to visit our website, where you can find out more about Southampton City Council and this key appointment. I hope that you find the information provided useful in making your application.

There are exciting times ahead for Southampton. We are very ambitious about what we can achieve in, and for, our city. Southampton has a great and innovative track record, from inventing fibre optics to building the famous Spitfire aircraft. I hope that we can become renowned for further significant achievements  in the future – putting us on the map not just as a South Coast powerhouse but as a city that stands out across the UK and beyond.

We believe that we can achieve this vision by building a prosperous local economy and using that as our platform to invest in infrastructure, facilities and transport. We are committed to building lasting partnerships – yet at the same time, we have the drive, skills and dedication to deliver services ourselves when the opportunity is right. Demand for our services is continuing to increase; so we will continue to innovate, to add value and to explore new ways to deliver the most efficient, effective services and outcomes to our communities.

If you want to join us on our journey I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about the ideas and initiatives you can bring to our ambitious Council. I wish you the very best of luck with your application.

Christopher Hammond
Leader of the Council
