Central Winchester Regeneration - Phase 1 - SPD
The first stage of the Central Winchester Regeneration project is to develop a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to act as a new planning brief for the area of Silver Hill and it's environs. The SPD will have the benefit of a formal status in the local planning system. An Informal Policy Group (IPG) has been established to develop the SPD which will then be considered by Cabinet for adoption.
The SPD will set out the type and layout of land uses that could be built on the site and will help to ensure that the development is fit for the future and will rejuvenate such a prominent part of the City.
The IPG has commissioned JTP an award-winning ‘placemaking’ practice of architects and masterplanners to work with the Council to formulate the SPD. This process will include public and stakeholder engagement and commissioning of studies and assessments to inform the development of the SPD. It is intended to complete this work by the end of 2017.
