Unanimous planning approval for Victoria House

Date posted: June 13, 2014

The Victoria House project, a scheme for 27 down-sizer and shared equity dwellings in the Hyde conservation area of Winchester, won unanimous planning approval at Committee yesterday. Councillors praised it as an “excellent design” and particularly praised the WCC Housing Team for selecting this site for the down-sizer units, in the heart of the City with all facilities close at hand. Work will begin shortly on the production phase of the project, with all the challenges on working on a constricted inner city site. Demolition and archaeology will commence later in the year, before construction starts in earnest.
