‘Be Bold’ on Winchester’s Future
We welcome the broad thrust of proposals set out in the City of Winchester Movement Strategy Phase Two consultation document.
Many of the document’s proposals are in line with WinACC’s earlier Transport Vision for Winchester. However, in light of transport’s contribution to the District’s carbon footprint, there are key areas where we would like to see more detail, such as reference to climate change targets and stronger measures for the middle and longer terms. WinACC urges the Councils to seize the mandate to ‘be bold’ in seeking to achieve the objectives outlined in the consultation.
This is a key opportunity to set the framework for movement in and around Winchester in the years to come and we would urge people to respond to the consultation which is open until 13 January 2019 to make their voice heard.
We are in the process of completing our final response but in the meantime our draft response is now available [here].
There is more information about the background to the Movement Strategy [here].”
