Solent Freeport

We are delighted that the Chancellor confirmed during his budget speech in March 2021 that the Solent Freeport proposal has been given approval to go ahead.

This is much-wanted news for the region as it provides opportunities for job creation through encouraging businesses to develop and grow.

In Portsmouth we have been identified as a customs site, with a tax site also located at the nearby Dunsbury Park, a large business park off the A3.

We expect Solent Freeport to be in operation in 2022. Whilst we work through the details with government, please keep in touch by registering your interest here. You’ll among the first to know what you can do to benefit from Freeport status, and the team will also try and answer any questions you might have.
