Colden Common

This area gives you access to various documents that are part of the evidence base for Local Plan Part 2 (LPP2), and which directly concern Colden Common. These include reports and studies produced by Winchester City Council or in collaboration with Colden Common Parish Council and groups within it. The documents can be downloaded below.

The preparation of LPP2 follows on directly from Local Plan Part 1 (Joint Core Strategy) and includes new or revised development management policies and site-specific development allocations based on Colden Common’s needs. City Council officers have worked closely with the Parish Council and the Community Engagement Group (’Commonview’) in order to identify these needs and to produce the necessary evidence to justify the new policies and allocations.

As part of this collaborative approach, in October/November 2013 the Parish and City Councils and Commonview undertook an informal consultation with the local community on its preferred new housing allocations. The ‘Village Development Strategy’ is available on the Parish Council website.
