Rob Fletcher leads Southport’s 2050 economic vision charge
Fletchers Solicitors’ founder and Chairman, Rob Fletcher is leading the way to ensure Southport receives the economic resurgence it may just need, post Covid-19.
As the newly appointed Chair of the Southport Town Deal Board, Rob is keen to see Southport, the town he loves, return to its former glory.
Consultation has already begun, with an ambitious, 25 million-pound Towns Fund already in motion.
As part of the vision, Southport could expect to see:
- New and improved leisure attractions
- A complete regeneration of the high street
- A major investment in the town’s conferencing and theatre offer
- Lakeside and seafront living
- As well as a transport interchange
Speaking about the ambitious project, Rob said:
“Stakeholders in Southport are passionate about their town. We want to harness that positive energy to make our bid to the Towns Fund a success and to unlock significant investment for the town. “We look forward to hearing what people think of the proposals as well as sharing their own ideas for the future of Southport.”
Members of the Southport community are invited to view the proposals and share their ideas here.

This phase of consultation will be live until 20th July, however the conversation with residents and businesses in Southport will continue over the coming months.
