Fulflood Liveable Neighbourhood - Pilot Scheme

Reduce city centre traffic, support healthier lifestyle choices and invest in infrastructure to support sustainable growth

Last update: June 2024

Have Your Say

We invited local residents, local groups, businesses and schools to participate and provide their feedback by looking at how we could make Fulflood neighbourhood more ‘liveable’ and to understand how you use local streets and spend your time in the area. This helps us to understand whether your streets allow you to do things you like doing, and how their use may change in the future.  There was an online feedback survey which closed on 24 March 2024 at 11:59pm or there was an opportunity to attend one of the workshops.

The two workshops were held at these venues;

  • St. Paul’s Church Hall, Fulflood, SO22 5AB;
  • Hampshire County Council, Ashburton Hall, Ground Floor, Elizabeth II Court, Sussex Street, SO32 8BH.

Scheme Overview

Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council want people who live in Fulflood to be involved in helping us develop a plan for a liveable neighbourhood.

The idea for liveable neighbourhoods across Winchester, supported by a series of walking and cycling routes, was first put forward in the Winchester Mini Holland Feasibility Study.  Please note that the schemes featured within the Mini Holland study do not form part of this project as Department for Transport funding for Mini Holland schemes is no longer available now. The Mini Holland project however formed the basis in identifying Fulflood as one of the areas in Winchester that could benefit from a liveable neighbourhood approach.

What is a liveable neighbourhood?

  • Liveable neighbourhoods are areas of a city that are improved to be more people-centred and ‘liveable’;
  • They're places that are safer, where more people have access to cleaner air and with improved connections between homes and a range of destinations including schools, shops, employment, leisure facilities and green spaces;
  • The improvements in a liveable neighbourhood aim to make it easier to walk or cycle, with improved infrastructure and less through traffic.

The liveable neighbourhood forms part of the Winchester Movement Strategy, our blueprint for positive change of the transport network within Winchester. It aims to create a more liveable, cleaner and greener city through the delivery of a co-ordinated set of improvements that will encourage more use of Park and Ride, bus, walking and cycling and help reduce dependence on private car travel.

Developing a pilot will help us to learn lessons and understand how to develop liveable neighbourhoods across the city.


Project Timescales

Stage 1 - Co-Discover - Community workshops to explore the issues and opportunities for a liveable neighbourhood within Fulflood.
Timeline; Early 2024

Stage 2 – Develop initial ideas – The project team will use the feedback from the Co-discovery stage to identify ideas and concepts for a liveable neighbourhood, and depending on community feedback, will then be further developed.
Timeline; Summer 2024

Stage 3 – Design and consultation to collaboratively develop a final set of proposals.
Timeline; Winter 2024/25

Funding Arrangements
Funding for the transport capital delivery schemes is separate from the County Council’s revenue budget and savings proposals. In the majority of cases funding comes from external grants and / or Section 106 contribution from developers. This funding usually has conditions that strictly control on how, where and when it can be spent.
