Eastleigh Borough Council (EBC) is proud of what it has achieved. As a medium-sized district council with big ambitions, it has delivered a large number of major projects and initiatives, ensuring it continues to be progressive and innovative in its approach.

Investing in our Community

In recent years, the Council has delivered a wide assortment of capital projects focused on putting its communities and customers first – from the development of Places Leisure Eastleigh (one of the largest leisure centres on the South Coast) and the nationally recognised Stoneham Football Complex to a new M&S Foodhall in the town centre and an eco-friendly visitor centre at Lakeside Country Park. The Council has offices in the heart of Eastleigh to provide excellent access for its customers.
