Future 50 - Verbal Update

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Historic Environment Team Leader provided a verbal update regarding the background to the Winchester Future 50 project. In summary, she stated that Future 50 was a pilot project that ended in 2020, prior to lockdown and focussed on conservation area guidance and management strategies with the involvement of Members, various interested parties and community groups and was supported by the Town Forum.


The pilot scheme consisted of two small areas of St Giles Hill and Central Winchester taking a themed approach to the conservation areas which included the space, character and general area to pull together easily accessible guidance material to feed back into the planning system, support planning applications, inform robust decision making and the local plan process by working collaboratively with Historic England and all mapping documentation for this was  available on the Council’s website.


In response, Members raised questions in relation to the linking of Future 50 with the Town Forum Heritage Group, the postponement of the public exhibition of Future 50 previously arranged in early 2020 and the maintenance of war memorials.




                        That the verbal update be noted.
