The Borough takes in Netley on the banks of Southampton Water, the historic river villages of Hamble-le-Rice, Bursledon and Botley, the developing area of Hedge End, West End and Fair Oak and the green residential belt of Chandler's Ford.

The town of Eastleigh with its excellent shopping, parking and Help Point facilities and plenty of opportunities for leisure and entertainment is the administrative and commercial centre of the Borough.

With a population of over 110,000 the Borough has seen a rapid and controlled expansion in residential, industrial and commercial development over recent years

Excellent communication links by road (M3 & M27), rail and air (Southampton International Airport located within the Borough) have helped promote this development to make the Borough an ideal base for companies setting up in the area.
It is also ideally placed for visiting the natural outstanding beauty of the New Forest, the Isle of Wight and the Dorset coastline and the historic towns of Winchester, Salisbury and Romsey.
