Welcome to Winchester City Council’s Consultation Web Pages.

These web pages provide details of consultations being organised by Winchester City Council. We're committed to involving people in decisions that affect them, and value their input in planning, delivering and evaluating services.

The Council is keen to make it easier for you to have your say on the decisions that affect you. Every year there is a wide range of issues and topics that residents of Winchester can get involved in and this site is designed to provide you with the opportunity to have your say in the issues affecting your local area.

Consultations provide you with an opportunity to have your say. They also help us to find out what you think and to understand your priorities and concerns.

Creative enterprise

We Asked:

An online survey via citizen space was created with a deadline March 21, and ‘calling’ cards were printed and handed out to those attending the exhibition with details of the website and how to respond, together with the dedicated email address for follow up/specific queries creativecentre@winchester.gov.uk

Provision was made during the exhibition for those visiting to complete the online survey, or to complete a paper version. In addition, a record of those artists interested in occupying workspace in the Old Goods Shed was compiled.

New Homes Tenant Survey - Itchen Abbas & Otterbourne

We Asked:

We asked our tenants who had been allocated a home in our new council house developments in Itchen Abbas & Otterbourne to complete our survey, which would provide feedback on the internal and external features of their homes as well as questions about their neighbourhood and level of service WCC provided as their landlord.

You Said:

Of the 8 households that were sent a questionnaire, 5 returned a completed questionnaire, giving a response rate of 62.5%.

The Key messages that have emerged from the consultation are:

  • All 5 households (100%) were satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of their home and with their neighbourhood as a place to live.
  • The internal design and features that households had the least satisfaction with was:
    • Storage (3xNeither Satisfied or Dissatisfied + 1xDissatisfied)
    • Doors & Windows (1xNeither Satisfied or Dissatisfied + 2xDissatisfied
    • Ventilation (1xVery Dissatisfied)
  • The external design and features that households had the least satisfaction with was:
    • Parking (2xVery dissatisfied)
    • Maintenance of outside areas (2xNeither Satisfied or Dissatisfied + 1xDissatisfied)
    • Provision of Bin Store/Recycling (1xNeither Satisfied or Dissatisfied + 1xDissatisfied = 1x Very dissatisfied)
  • 80% of the households had been allocated a property in their preferred area of choice

For more detailed results please visit the results section on the website

We Did:

Allocation of parking spaces for subsequent developments have been considered carefully and more discussion with the ‘Allocations Team’ has taken place to avoid similar occurrences from happening in the future.

The New Homes Team will also implement a ‘Design Review Panel’ at key stages of the design process that can consider the practical implications of design decisions or choices being made.

During the consultation process, we ask for your feedback, you tell us and then we make positive changes. Public participation is key to our work. See what happens with We Asked, You Said, We Did.
