Central Winchester Regeneration (Silver Hill)
Winchester City Cabinet decided on 10 February 2016:
It is WinACC's view that the developers have not adequately addressed some of the sustainability aspects in conditions 5 and 11. Summary below - see our full comment
The City Council decided at its meeting on Thursday 28 January 2016 to end its deal with TH Real Estate to redevelop the Silver Hill area of Winchester.
The Silver Hill Independent Review has now started. If you would like to make a written submission, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of April 2015.
The Queens Bench has decided that Winchester City Council acted unlawfully in agreeing to change the requirements on the developers of Silver Hill without inviting other firms to tender for the revised contract. See the full legal judgement.
WinACC remains concerned about three ways in which the development is not climate-friendly:
- too many parking places;
- inadequate facilities for people using the buses;
- a public realm which isn't convivial
Here is WinACC's formal objection to the planning application.
An exhibition runs in in Winchester Guildhall from Monday 8 to Sat 13 September 2014 on proposed amendments to the Silver Hill regeneration scheme. The planning documents are now on-line, with a deadline of 17 Sept; planning committee in October.
The July 2014 revised proposals for Silver Hill are to be displayed in the Guildhall Courtyard:
Saturday 12 July: 9 am – 5 pm;
Sunday 13 July: 9 am to 5 pm
Monday 14 July to Friday 18 July: 9 am to 6 pm
WinACC's response to the Silver Hill consultation April 2014.
Public exhibition in Winchester’s Guildhall 27-29 March 2014.
