Rowlings Road Eastern Garage Court Public Consultation Event

The Council has prepared draft pre-application plans to redevelop the Rowlings Road Eastern Garage Court for 3 x 2 bedroom family homes and 4 x 1 bedroom flats, with associated improvements to public footpath routes and visual improvement to the public realm that will benefit local people.

A public consultation event is taking place at Weeke Community Centre on Thursday 13 July from 2:30pm until 7:00pm. Please feel free to come along to view the plans and discuss the proposals with members of the New Homes Delivery Team and architects.

If you are unable to attend the event the plans will be available to view shortly after the event at this web page.

There is a serious shortage of affordable and Council homes within the district and the Council has a programme to build 300 new homes by 2020. Garage courts such as the one at Rowlings Road are not well used for car parking and provide excellent sites for new homes. Winchester City Council recently won a Solent Design Award for the new council homes at Symonds Court, Weeke, and we aim to create a similar high quality housing scheme at the site.
