Many ways for local people to have their say on Winchester City Centre Regeneration Plan

Now that the formal consultation is underway on the Central Winchester Regeneration area’s draft Supplementary Planning document (SPD), Winchester City Council and master planners and architects JTP are reminding local people of the many ways to get involved and have their say.

A static exhibition display of the draft SPD and planning guidelines is now available to view in The Brooks Shopping Centre until 8 January 2018.

A touring exhibition will run from 10 – 15 January which will enable people to see the latest materials and meet JTP and Council staff in a range of locations including Alresford, Bishops Waltham and Winchester.

Cllr Caroline Horrill, Council Leader and Chair of the Informal Policy Group said:

“This formal consultation is such an exciting and important element of the CWR project as we invite local people to take an active part in shaping the plans. I would urge everyone to take a few minutes to look at the information, either on our website, in their local library, at the Brooks Shopping Centre or at one of our manned exhibition venues in the New Year.

“Since we began engaging with the local community nearly a year ago, we have been delighted that so many people have contributed their views as our ideas for Central Winchester have progressed, and we hope that this commitment to help shape a vibrant new centre for our city will continue.”

 

The formal consultation will run until noon on Monday 5 February.
