Updating our customers and the wider community on our regeneration plans for Winklebury

This week, we’ve sent a newsletter to our customers and the wider community in Winklebury, updating them on our regeneration plans for the area. This will be landing with our customers and the local community in early January 2022 but is available to view now here:

Support for our customers in the Winklebury Centre and retail units

As plans for the regeneration progress, we’re here to support you and answer any questions you may have if you’re a VIVID resident or retailer in the Winklebury Centre, every step of the way. We’ll be continuing our conversations with you individually over the coming months to discuss your needs and circumstances and how we can assist you.

We’re currently working through the feedback gathered from our questionnaire which was sent out to Winklebury Centre residents in the summer and we’d like to thank those who took part in this.

We’re also in the process of surveying all retail units in the Winklebury Centre and we’re putting together a comprehensive plan, using a specialist provider, for the temporary relocation of the businesses during the construction period. We’d like to offer reassurance that the plans include high-quality, and well-located space for any of the retailers who wish to stay in the Centre once works are completed. We’ll keep you updated on our proposals, but if you have any questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Having your say

We’re preparing to submit our application for planning permission in Spring 2022. Once this has been submitted, you’ll once again have the opportunity to make any comments on the proposals via the Council’s planning portal. Please keep an eye on Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council’s website for updates on this.
