Draft Design Framework Report Consultation – 18 May 2018

Consultation on the draft Design Framework (pdf, 4.5mb) is nearing completion.

The district community’s input has been instrumental to producing this report. In the last year alone, the Council have held 3 phases of public consultation which included 14 events at 6 different venues. We’ve listened and taken notes from at least 700 conversations, over 1,000 responses to our online survey. We have worked closely with our partners and advisory panels.

The draft Design Framework sets out our shared vision for the new Sport and Leisure Park and provides guidance for future development in the Bar End area, including the Sport and Leisure Park.

Its immediate use is to inform the design and layout of the new Sport and Leisure centre,  landscaping surrounding the centre and  accessibility of the park.

It also provides guidance for future considerations and decisions of the landowners in the area including the City Council, the County Council and the University of Winchester.

It is not a formal planning document but does set out the long term aspirations for the area and will be referred to when considering future investment or improvement plans for the area.
