Since our open meeting about Barton Farm on 1 December 2012, WinACC has been working with the City of Winchester Trust to influence decisions about this housing development. We have had two informal meetings with the developers, Cala Homes. The first focussed on the decision to turn the Andover Road into a cycle and pedestrian path and to route all traffic through the middle of the development. In the second meeting, members of WinACC’s Built Environment Group advised the planners how to make the development sustainable – and profitable – by building high quality housing and using district heating.

WinACC’s work on planning is co-ordinated by the Built Environment Group which meets with our Transport Group on alternate first Mondays of the month from 5.30-7.00. Join in by emailing
