City Council announces purchase of Coventry House, Barfield Close

Winchester City Council has announced a decision to purchase Coventry House, Barfield Close from Vaultex UK Ltd.

 

The Leader of the Council, Councillor Caroline Horrill confirmed that the sale was proceeding and that the purchase was being funded through the Strategic Asset Purchase Scheme:

 

“The acquisition of this property will enable the Council to expand the Park & Ride parking scheme in the City to support our aim to improve the quality of the District’s environment by reducing congestion and improving air quality. This site is convenient to visitors as it is both close to the Motorway, and near enough to the city centre to encourage users to walk to their destination.”

 

Hugh Gilmour Head of Risk and Security at Vaultex also confirmed the sale and added that the company was delighted to be able to support the Council’s aim to create a new edge of town parking facility.
