Latest news

The latest plans for the proposed Winchester Sport and Leisure Park at Bar End are open for consultation until Sunday 21 January.   WinACC's Built Environment and Transport Action Group is drafting a response that will focus on transport, especially the forecast impact on health from emissions that contribute to climate change and poor air quality.   

It was great to see so many people at our stall at Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market & Ice Rink. We were raffling hampers of local produce to raise funds for WinACC. The hampers were filled with lots of interesting and tasty local, sustainable food.  We raised over £500 from sales of raffle tickets and got to chat to lots of lovely people.

‘THE BIG SWITCH OFF’ - Sunday 19 November 6-7pm
With Office of Road and Rail statistics showing an 8.8% decline in train journeys in 2016/17, there is an urgent need to introduce new train journey opportunities. South Western Railway has been consulting on proposals for changes to its train timetable from December 2018.

The latest proposals for the Bar End leisure centre can be read in a report to the City Council Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 20 November.
