To date 

Having looked at the key issues that will impact the Eastleigh area over the next decade we decided that our purpose is to help steer public sector strategy, to ensure that we have sufficient and sustainable resources that will be fundamental to the success of the Eastleigh area. 

To this end we have identified the 4 key resources we should focus on, which will be Property, People, Power and Communication/Transportation.

Anybody with an interest in these areas would be welcome to join us at our future meetings.
