Station Approach is a development project to revitalise the area of Winchester between the Cattlemarket and the railway station. The Vision for Winchester and Local Plan Part 1 identify the area around Winchester railway station as lending itself to development to provide a new area of commercial, office, residential and retail space to strengthen Winchester’s economy and enhance the local environment. The area in question has been informally christened ‘Station Approach’ and includes the old Carfax site (including the former registry office building), the current Cattlemarket car park and it also incorporates the area of public realm between the two sites. An economic appraisal and a financial appraisal of the options are required for the Carfax site (the Cattlemarket site may follow later if needed).
