Steve Brine has welcomed news that Hiltingbury Lakes is set for a range of environmental improvements.
A joint project between the Environment Agency and Eastleigh Borough Council will improve the overall appearance of the area, and the quality of the water, which will also improve fish stocks.
Work will include the installation of floating islands, a new reed bed and new areas of planting around the existing island.
Chandler's Ford MP Steve Brine said: "I know how much Hiltingbury Lakes means to local residents and warmly welcome this project, which will I am sure improve the area for everyone who already enjoys it so much."
The work will be undertaken by Wessex Land and Water Ltd, and is expected to take around three weeks.
