We are delighted to have been selected as part of the team to work with JTP, an award-winning ‘placemaking’ practice of architects and masterplanners, to work with the Council and wider community to create a Supplementary Planning Document for what was known as Silverhill. This will set out a vision for the future development of central Winchester through collaborative planning and consultation.

The decision by Winchester City Council follows the consideration of 17 high quality bids received from organisations who were interested in working on the central Winchester project.

The council stated, ‘JTP has formed a strong team to work on the commission with Hampshire based Snug Architects and landscape architects Ubu Design together with consultancies with expertise in commercial property, movement and infrastructure.‘ We are due to start work on the project early in 2017.

Cllr Victoria Weston, Chairman of the Central Winchester Informal Policy Group said:

‘The Central Winchester Informal Policy Group is delighted to be working with JTP and their team on this exciting opportunity to work with the public and stakeholders to formulate guidance for the regeneration of central Winchester.’

Marcus Adams, Managing Partner at JTP said:

‘We recognise the significance of this site in activating the wider regeneration of Winchester, and appreciate its rich heritage which will play an important part in informing the framework.

Through our unique collaborative design processes we will aim to build a consensus to create a distinctive place, reimaging and enhancing the character and identity of Winchester.’

The Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) sets out the type and layout of land uses that could be built on the Silver Hill site and will help to ensure that the development is fit for the future and will rejuvenate such a prominent part of the City.
