In March 2018 Winchester City Council launched the public engagement and consultation process for the Station Approach development by organising a series of drop-in events to give everyone the opportunity to see what progress has been made and offer feedback on the masterplan for the project.

Over 250 people came along to look at the exhibition and talk to the architects and project team members in person.

All feedback from this first round of public engagement is currently being analysed and will be used to help guide the design process. Further details will be published in due course.
