Have your say – Central Winchester Regeneration consultation

Central Winchester Regeneration

The plan for the regeneration of central Winchester received broad support when a draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the area was presented to Winchester City Council’s Informal Policy Group (IPG) and over 100 members of the public.

The plan includes an extensive urban design framework that supports the creation of a mixed-use, pedestrian friendly quarter. It also sets out the public realm requirements and recommendations for nine distinct areas including the Broadway, Friarsgate and the Antiques Market. Residents will have the opportunity to find out more about the plans and give their initial feedback at a drop-in event at Guildhall Winchester on Tuesday 14 November between 4pm and 8pm.

The draft plan (which will need to be reviewed by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee before being approved by Cabinet on 6 December) is set to go out for public consultation from Monday 11 December until 5 February 2018. The initial draft SPD is available on http://www.winchester.gov.uk/projects/5744/central-winchester-regeneration
