Redevelopment moves forward

Winchester City Council’s Station Approach project has been given the green light to move forward.

The Cabinet (Station Approach) Committee received an update on site access, market analysis and delivery at their meeting on 4th October and was satisfied that preparation for a planning application can begin, with a proposed submission date in March 2019.


The development will create Grade A office space within 130,000 square feet of business accommodation, bringing new commerce and employment opportunities to Winchester, supported by café and small retail units. Over 1,000 jobs could be accommodated on the site and the scheme has the support of the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce as well as Winchester BID.


It will also involve transforming the area outside of the station, offering improved options for pedestrian, cyclist and public transport users, making moving around and living in the area a more desirable and pleasant experience.


Key stakeholders will be invited to share their vision for the outdoor spaces at a series of workshops next month, with a full public consultation following early next year.


The council has also confirmed that the registry office (pictured left in an artist’s impression) will remain. Uses for the building are yet to be decided, but could include a bar/restaurant use.
