A new Gateway for Winchester

A new report shows how the railway station area of Winchester could be revitalised.

Winchester City Council commissioned a ‘Development Assessment’ from planning and urban design specialists Tibbalds to look at the potential of the Winchester Station approach.

The report, which will be considered by the City Council’s Cabinet in December, reveals how appropriate development could improve a major gateway into Winchester from Andover Road, increase employment in the city and maintain parking for rail users.

Improvements to the Railway Station approach, the Carfax site and Andover Road area are something that many have asked for and want to see. The City Council agrees that it is a good idea and is working towards an overall masterplan for the area. This will, if accepted by Council in due course, form part of our local plan.”
