An image of Whiteley Community CentreThe settlement at Whiteley was planned as a growth sector for South Hampshire when the area north of junction 9 of the M27 was identified as a development site for about 6000 people, a business park, a golf course, schools, community and service facilities. Its woodland setting has been retained to provide a framework for development.

In the mid 1980s, Solent Business Park to the east of the main access road from junction 9 was the first development phase. Developers invested in landscaping to create a green campus to provide one of the most attractive settings for modern industry and employment uses in the country. It is home to a range of companies such as Zurich, Lloyds TSB, Datacard, Shoosmith and Harrison, Thomson Local Directories, Prudential Assurance and Scottish Amicable. Development opportunities remain.

An image of the shop adjacent to Whiteley Community CentreThe main residential areas of Whiteley lie to the west of the main access road. New houses have been constructed steadily throughout the 1990's. This is set within the context of extensive areas of retained woodland and green spaces. There is an extensive network of new roads and footpaths. The community is served by an infant and junior school at Gull Coppice and a community centre.

The Solent Hotel and Parson's Collar public house are key facilities to meet the needs of the business and residential communities. Whiteley village, the new commercial and community centre for the settlement, contains a range of "factory outlet" shopping, a small supermarket and a range of community facilities.
