Winchester seeks development partner for city centre regeneration

Winchester City Council will be launching the procurement process for a development partner for the regeneration of a significant area in the centre of Winchester on 17 March 2022.

The transformation of this key part of Winchester aims to bring significant benefits to people living and working in and around the district, including the delivery of flexible workspace, retail and leisure facilities, high quality homes and an attractive public realm.

This announcement follows the council’s decision to proceed with plans to regenerate the Central Winchester Regeneration (CWR) area and realise the redevelopment of the bus station, Kings Walk, the old Friarsgate Medical Centre and Coitbury House. The vision, as set out in the agreed CWR Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), is for a vibrant, mixed-use destination which is highly sustainable, reducing reliance on cars in the city centre whilst adding to Winchester’s already rich and varied heritage and cultural offer.

Proposals for the redevelopment of the CWR site have already been prepared in conjunction with JLL and Arup. JLL will continue to support the council on the detailed delivery of the procurement process over the coming months. The approach is underpinned by a massing study, cost plan and viability assessment to ensure that the investment objectives are viable and deliverable.
