Central Winchester Regeneration - Phase 1 - SPD

Central Winchester Regeneration Study Area

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 ofSilver 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 detailed aims and objectives for regeneration of central Winchester (within the defined area) and the consequential changes required to the surrounding area (including the Broadway and Lower High Street), as guided by the adopted planning policies in the Local Plan. 

The IPG has agreed to commission an urban design practice with experience in public engagement 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.
