Once the temporary works is complete the construction of the new facility will begin and is estimated to be complete in 2019. The redevelopment  scheme will:

•    Improve odour control at the site
•    Ensure the treated wastewater leaving the site meets new, higher environmental standards
•    Involve a complete redesign of the works so it fits in with the redevelopment of the area

Estelle Brachlianoff, Veolia’s senior executive vice president, said: “We’re working closely with the
consortium to ensure Southampton residents are receiving the most efficient technologies suitable for their needs. We are looking forward to seeing the facility begin to take shape and complement the redevelopment of the area.”

Southampton City Council approved the proposal in June following the decision by the Planning and Rights of Way panel in January to delegate final approval to the Planning and Development Manager. The project got the green light at the end of July.
