We have collated the consultation results and these will be used to inform the design of an upgraded play area.

We asked

The Estate Improvements Team put forward a scheme to provide the residents of King Alfred Place with better opportunities to enjoy the communal outdoor spaces, improved drying facilities and secure cycle storage.

The proposal included creating more useable space by moving back a retaining wall, providing seating, planters, water butts, washing lines and secure cycle storage, as well as, replacing damaged fencing and extending the block paving.

We specifically asked residents if they wished to

  • Grow their own plants, fruit and vegetables
  • Dry their washing outside
  • Keep a bicycle

You said

We received seven responses as follows:

  • 85.7% of respondents are interested in growing their own plants, fruits, and vegetables
  • Some respondents wanted to dry their laundry outside and were keen for the washing line to be located in a central position to take advantage of the sun
  • 57.1% said that they would make use of secure bicycle storage despite only 28.6% currently owning a bike
  • There were several requests for secure garden storage and for repairs to be made to the fencing

We did

We have amended the plan in response to residents’ feedback and requirements and are now working towards delivering the improvements.

We asked

The Mayor of Winchester’s Community Award recognises and celebrates the organisations and individuals who have given outstanding service to the people of Winchester District.  The Mayor invited nominations that reflect the full range of community support from all corners of the Winchester District.

Between 3 January and 18 February 2024, we received 125 nominations for the Mayor of Winchester’s Community Award.

All nominations were considered carefully, and more than 100 award-winners were invited to receive their certificates and pin badges from the Mayor at a special event in the Guildhall on 7 March. Photos were taken with the Mayor and award-winners, which were available to take away at the end of the evening as a souvenir.
