What’s your

What’s the one thing about being part of Winchester today that you wish you could share with your great great great grandchild?

As part of the Winchester Vision 2030 we asked you to tell us; “What’s Your One Great Win” so that we could create a vision document that will be used to shape your city for the next ten years. We heard from many people of all ages and backgrounds, organisations, businesses and community groups across all wards of the City. We engaged with you online, some face-to-face, others over the phone and even via digital walks. Our findings and subsequent recommendations have been shaped by the insightful, innovative and action-orientated ideas put forward by you, the people of Winchester. We now want to share our draft Vision with you. Find out more below.

It’s How, not What

From our varied and in-depth conversations this year, and from the working groups we held this autumn, it was clear that people really love Winchester. You love its ecology and its history, you love being able to walk into the city along the river, and you love the sense of community and rich cultural activities in the city. You know it is a great place to live and you touched on this in pretty much every conversation we had. 
 
There is of course a wide range of resident experience for instance in terms of housing, travel or employment opportunities, or in the degree to which young people can afford to or want to stay in the city. There are also widespread concerns about the local impact of the global Climate Crisis and how to mitigate that too. 
 
It became clear to us, in almost every conversation that there was a sense of transition, transformation, or moving forward being thwarted. That something was stopping the city from making changes- even small changes. This must change if the city is to thrive.
 
Hearing these frustrations over and over from all walks of life has led us to the conclusion that the Vision document from Winchester 2020-2030 must focus on how change happens, rather what the change is. This led to the draft Vision document which was built from a foundation of five clear targets that you told us are dear to you:
