Southampton City Council work in collaboration with other organisations in Southampton via these main partnerships:

These partnerships bring together the private, public, community and voluntary sectors to improve the quality of life for all those who live, work and visit the city. 

Besides participating in these partnerships, the council also work at a sub-regional level through the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire (PUSH) and the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (Solent LEP).

In addition, we have also entered into a number of formal contractual partnerships such as the Strategic Services Partnership with Capita, Balfour Beatty and South Coast Street Lighting; a private finance initiative with Hampshire and West Sussex county councils. 

The work of the Partnership is informed by developing national and local policy, current performance data, future needs and the views of our residents and stakeholders in the city.

Our most recent city survey in 2016 highlights residents satisfaction and priorities for improvement. If you are interested in giving your opinion on matters affecting Southampton you may want to Join the People’s Panel
