Bushfield Camp Consultation Events

The possible development of Bushfield Camp, which lies within our parish, has concerned the Parish Council for many years.

The report of the January 1995 PC meeting[1]January 1995 PC meeting – this website notes that “Members considered the Bushfield Camp Draft Study by Winchester City Council

So this latest proposal and the accompanying public consultation events should be of interest to residents.

3pm – 7pm
Shawford Parish Hall

Sunday 20th November
10am – 2pm

The MPC Agency, working for the developers, have told us that

Legal & General, Gisborne and the Church Commissioners for England are bringing forward proposals for the regeneration of Bushfield Camp, Winchester.

The development of a best-in-class mixed use scheme has the potential to attract major brands looking for new headquarters to the county from sectors including life science, academia, media and the health sector. The delivery of Bushfield Camp will generate new employment uses that will secure new social, economic and environmental benefits for the city, capitalising on the site’s proximity to the centre of Winchester.

The exhibition will be opened to the public. Residents are being invited to attend drop in consultation events on Friday, 18th November from 3-7pm at Shawford Parish Hall and on Sunday, 20th November from 10-2pm at Badger Farm Community Centre. Attached is the newsletter that is being sent to over 3,500 residential and business addresses in the local area.

There is also an interactive map and survey on our website – https://bushfieldcampregeneration.co.uk/ – where residents are invited to add their comments and questions.

In total, we will be hosting three rounds of public engagement over the next six months. This first round of engagement events will focus on listening to the community’s ideas and aspirations. There will then be another set of events in January to consult on the concept masterplan, with a final set of events held in March to gather local feedback on the final masterplan before a planning application is submitted early in the summer.
