To find out what the consultants JTP are recommending to the Winchester City Council on the "Central Winchester Regeneration Area" (in other words, Silver Hill and the area around it) please look out for the reports for the next meeting of the Informal Policy Group on 4 July 6:00 at the Guildhall, Winchester.

Works to Winchester bus station start at the beginning of July, to be completed by September. When the bus station reopens, buses will no longer use the High Street but travel through the bus station in a northerly direction along Friarsgate and/or Tanner St and Silver Hill and use the bus stops behind Marks & Spe

Winchester City Cabinet decided on 10 February 2016:

It is WinACC's view that the developers have not adequately addressed some of the sustainability aspects in conditions 5 and 11. Summary below - see our full comment

The City Council decided at its meeting on Thursday 28 January 2016 to end its deal with TH Real Estate to redevelop the Silver Hill area of Winchester.

The Silver Hill Independent Review has now started. If you would like to make a written submission, send it to silverhillreview@winchester.gov.uk by the end of April 2015.

The Queens Bench has decided that Winchester City Council acted unlawfully in agreeing to change the requirements on the developers of Silver Hill without inviting other firms to tender for the revised contract. See the full legal judgement.

WinACC remains concerned about three ways in which the development is not climate-friendly:

  • too many parking places;
  • inadequate facilities for people using the buses;
  • a public realm which isn't convivial

Here is WinACC's formal objection to the planning application.

An exhibition runs in in Winchester Guildhall from Monday 8 to Sat 13 September 2014 on proposed amendments to the Silver Hill regeneration scheme. The planning documents are now on-line, with a deadline of 17 Sept; planning committee in October.

The July 2014 revised proposals for Silver Hill are to be displayed in the Guildhall Courtyard:
Saturday 12 July: 9 am – 5 pm;
Sunday 13 July: 9 am to 5 pm
Monday 14 July to Friday 18 July: 9 am to 6 pm
