The Winchester City Council’s Local Development Framework (LDF) Core Strategy will set the ‘spatial strategy’ for the District over the next 20 years and provide ‘strategic’ policies and allocations to deliver the strategy. Once adopted, the Core Strategy sets the direction for other documents within the LDF. 

The recommended Core Strategy Preferred Option document will be considered by a full meeting of the City Council on 22 April. This will be followed by a consultation period in May and June. The Preferred Option consultation is effectively the last opportunity for people to comment and for the Council to revise its strategy before the more formal statutory stages.  WinACC members and supporters are encouraged to play a full part in the consultation on the Preferred Option document.
