Car Parking Strategy - Review 2016

The City Council’s District Car Parking Strategy covering the period 2014 -2018 was adopted following public consultation in the autumn of 2013.

This strategy sets out Winchester City Council’s approach to managing the provision of car parking to serve Winchester itself (which for clarity we refer to as ‘Winchester Town’) and in the market towns of New Alresford, Bishops Waltham, Wickham, Whiteley and Denmead.

As a strategic document it does not set out each and every decision or action that will affect car parking in the District but does provide a framework for decision making in the period 2014 to 2018. The strategy focuses primarily on off-street public car parking provision and was set out with the provision to be reviewed regularly.

At the heart of this strategy is the principle that we should have enough car parking spaces in appropriate locations to ensure the success of our town centres and improve the quality of our environment.

We are now undertaking a mid term review of the Strategy as we are looking to ensure that we are making progress on its delivery.  Please take the time to follow the link below and to take part in the consultation process that is a key part of the review.  The consultation closes on 30th August 2016.

The strategy follows on from the publication of ‘Towards a Winchester District Parking Strategy’ which was subject to public consultation in the autumn of 2013. The consultation was held for six weeks allowing stakeholders and the public to contribute their views on the City Council’s proposals. A summary report of the consultation can be downloaded below.
