The Station Approach Design Competition entries, including the competition winner’s,  was on display in Winchester Guildhall in the week starting 9 May. 

The display is also on the Council’s website at Station Approach Display Boards.  

After WCC Cabinet appoints an architect, full public consultation on the design will follow to help develop the scheme, including specific opportunities for the Station Approach Panel.  Any scheme would also need to be submitted for planning permission with further accompanying consultation.

This exhibition displays the two designs that were presented to an independent Design Jury for their review and evaluation. To comply with European Union procurement rules for the process they must remain anonymous until the Design Jury’s report has been finalised. The Jury will indicate which of the designs it has scored more highly and their marks will be added to marks for meeting other technical and financial requirements to produce a highest scoring scheme. The Council’s Cabinet will make a decision as to whether to make an appointment to the highest scoring team who would then refine their design. Cabinet may decide not to progress with either proposal.

The Jury’s scoring was based on their judgement of a range of criteria relating to urban design.

The purpose of this display is to give members of the public the opportunity to see the proposals that the Jury considered.

Council officers will be available to answer questions on the project and the design process. The display is also available to view online via the link below. 

Although this stage does not constitute a formal consultation you are free to make a comment which will be passed onto Cabinet Members and this can be done here; alternatively if you would like to visit the display there will be comments sheets available.
