Estate Improvement

Estate Improvements

The Estate Improvement Programme is available to undertake specific, larger scale estate improvements, which may otherwise have not been possible using the general estate management budget.

The budget is specifically for larger projects which will address community issues, and so far we have received some very good suggestions as to how we can make real improvements to the communities in which you live. We have already completed a number of projects, including;

  • Improving parking arrangements and facilities
  • Improving security in communal areas, through the installation of door entry systems
  • The installation of communal fencing & lighting
  • Small scale regeneration projects.

Proposals can be made by Winchester City Council tenants and leaseholders, Councillors and Council Officers, and should be made using the Estate Improvements Proposal Form, providing as much detail as possible. Proposals can be made using our online form ( , or the form can be downloaded below. Please provide as much detail as possible, including any supporting information from other agencies, (such as the Police, Fire Service etc.), if you have it. As the scheme is very popular, not all suggestions can be taken forward, and so it is important that you provide as much information as possible, so that your application can be fully considered. If you are not sure if your suggestion qualifies for this scheme, speak to your Area Housing Manager in the first instance, who will be able to offer you advice. Some smaller projects can be delivered by your Area Housing Manager directly.

Completed forms and additional documentation should be returned to Sarah Charlton, Area Housing Manager (Estate Improvements) at the City Offices, Colebrook Street, Winchester, SO23 9LJ.
