Consultation briefing – Winchester Movement Strategy

Name of consultation: City of Winchester Movement Strategy Consultation

Period of consultation: Midday, Monday 30 October 2017 to 11:59pm Friday 8
December 2017

What is being consulted on
This is a joint consultation. Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council
are seeking residents’ and stakeholders’ views on travel and transport constraints
within Winchester, and how these might be addressed to improve movement
throughout the City.

The consultation seeks to clarify the key priorities for movement across the City and
to gather ideas for how these priorities could be addressed.”

Consultation feedback will help to inform a new Movement Strategy for Winchester,
which will set out priorities and options for change over the next 20-30 years.

Key messages:

This is an early stage consultation. Currently, nothing has been decided and the
suggested priorities and examples within the Information Pack are primarily
included to provide a context for responses. Depending on the outcomes of the
consultation and other evidence gathered during this part of the development
process, they may or may not be taken forwards.

This strategy has the potential to impact on everyone who lives in, works in, visits
or passes through Winchester, whether travelling by car, or public transport, on
bike or by foot. Therefore, it’s important that everyone’s voices are heard.

We are aware that the challenges and constraints are potentially difficult to
resolve, but having a robust and widely supported Strategy will help inform local
authority decisions and support future funding bids that could enable significant
infrastructure improvements.

We would encourage everyone to read the Information Pack before submitting
their response.


A range of consultation exercises will be carried out to ensure that all residents and
stakeholders have the opportunity to tell us their views. We expect calls to primarily
relate to the open public consultation, but you may receive occasional queries about
the other two parts.
