Community Plan

On Tuesday 14 July 2015 Winchester City Council held an event about new affordable homes and improving facilities in Abbotts Barton.

We were collecting feedback on the Community Plan. Having an agreed plan gives the community a better footing when working with the Council on future projects in the area as we can prove that there is a demand. The plan is so far based on the feedback given by residents in the 2012 consultation event held by Winchester City Council. As requirements and ideas change over time, we need to update what has been put together so far and we asked attendants to fill out a questionnaire to help us do that.

If you haven't had a chance to come along to the event, you can find an online version of our questionnaire on the SurveyMonkey! website:

Community Plan Questionnaire

Here are some preliminary results from 18 August: Quick update about Community Plan questionnaire results

If you are unsure as to whether you should be answering the questionnaire, please take a look at our map page to see which area we are covering, Abbotts Barton is bigger than most people think!

Below you can find the documents that the Community Group presented at the event:
