Winnall Flats Development Proposal

Closes 22 Oct 2020

Opened 1 Oct 2020

Results expected 26 Oct 2020

Feedback expected 30 Oct 2020

Overview

The Council is proposing to build 73 flats and 3 small family houses next to the existing Winnall Flats, improve the open space and make changes to the parking, including demolition of the garages.  The outline business case for the proposed new homes at Winnall Flats was approved by the Council’s Cabinet on 23 December 2019.

The New Homes Team has appointed Wates Construction Ltd to take the project through the planning and design stages, and to prepare a full cost assessment for the building work. Wates have appointed T2 Architects and Ubu Landscape Architects as their design team – both are based in Winchester.

The Council has previously held a number of events for residents of the Winnall Flats to discuss the emerging proposals for the new homes.

The Council proposes to build two blocks of 1 and 2 bedroom flats (in 5 storey buildings) and three 2 bedroom houses.  The new flats will be a mix of shared ownership and rented. 

In addition to the new homes, we are proposing to improve the open spaces around the site, provide link footpaths and develop a new community garden to the south of the site.  The garages will be demolished and parking provided for both the existing and new flats in a range of small and large parking courts. 

The new homes are being designed to be as energy efficient as possible, with the aim to achieve the AECB standard (Association for Environment Conscious Building) https://www.aecb.net/ benefitting both the occupants and the environment.

If you are watching the recording of the presentation, please skip to 29 minutes, when the presentation will begin. Thank you. 

Why We Are Consulting

We want to give you the opportunity to comment on our plans so that we can further refine the proposals if necessary, before we submit a planning application – which we aim to do in early December 2020.

We are therefore holding a live virtual presentation on Thursday 15th October at 3pm via Microsoft Teams.  Local residents are encouraged to join us to view the proposals for the new housing and improvements to the surrounding area. 

Please submit any questions during the event; there will also be an opportunity to email questions and comments after the event has been broadcast.
