Winchester City Council  have been consulting on new plans for Winchester Station Approach - see the Council website

In summary, there is much in the proposals that we welcome. We would also like to see these significant changes:

  1. Demonstrate co-ordination with the findings of the Winchester Movement Strategy
  2. Removal of all parking from the Carfax site (except for parking for people with reduced mobility).
  3. Abandonment of the one-way busway option; this will cause harmful delays to inbound bus journeys.
  4. Explicit designs for cycling to be added to the proposals for “walking routes”.
  5. Relocation of the proposed taxi pick-up point to accommodate the high numbers of taxis and reduce conflict with buses.
  6. Comprehensive standards for low-carbon building design.
