The neighbourhood team have provided the following description of their work:
The city centre is home to the main shopping centre for the area with three shopping centres the largest West Quay, the smallest The Bargate Centre with the Mall between the two. It also has dozens of leading name stores with further specialist stores in the East Street area. It also contains some other large businesses including Skandia Life and Capita along with many others. The main Southampton Central police station is situated near the railway station. All the banks and building societies plus travel agents and bureau de change are also here. The area has many bars, restaurants and a night club and the whole area is busy day and night through to about 4am. Very few people actually reside in the city centre but there are a few flats over shops and business premises and a few houses in the old town at the north end of Bugle Street. However tens of thousands work, shop and vist here everyday. Southampton city centre is a very busy environment indeed
