A vibrant business district and gateway to WInchester city centre is the vision of SNUG architects working with students from Southampton University.

Their plans aim to ensure viability by re-organising land uses and improving the public realm with commercial developments in key sites thus increasing the value of commercial propeerty and the long term income from business rates.

Parking is retained and better located. Key views to the cathedral are retained. Larger scale developments are located as a perimeter to a new public park  over the retained Cattle Market carpark. Pedestrian, cycle and vehicle flow is improved and congestion eased through subtle changes to the highway and a more permeable and legible townscape. A movie of the vision can be watched on YouTube
