Overview

Winchester City Council wants to hear your comments on our proposed Council Strategy for 2017-2020.  Our Strategy (previously called the Community Strategy) has been updated to reflect the challenges that the district and the Council are facing over the next three years and the ambitions that we have for our residents, businesses and visitors.

We have grouped our Strategy under five areas.  These are:

  1. Delivering Quality Housing Options
  2. Winchester will be a premier business location
  3. Delivering an Entrepreneurial approach to efficient public services
  4. Improving the health and happiness of our community
  5. Improving the quality of the district’s environment

Within these areas we have set out key measures which we will use to see how well are we doing in delivering our Strategy.

Please use the link below to comment on whether you agree with these 5 outcomes and to give us your thoughts on the measures which we will use to support the Strategy.

This consultation will close on January 13th.  After this we will take account of your comments and a final version will be presented to Cabinet and Full Council in February 2017 for approval.  The Strategy will then drive all the Council’s services and projects
