Legal & General and Gisborne, in partnership with the Church Commissioners for England, have launched their consultation on plans for the circa 1 million sq ft regeneration of Bushfield Camp in Winchester. The development of a best-in-class mixed use scheme has the potential to attract major brands looking for new headquarters to the county from sectors including life science, academia, media and the health sector.

Situated to the south of the city centre, Bushfield Camp has been included in Winchester City Council’s Draft Regulation 18 Consultation Plan. The Bushfield Camp draft allocation (Policy W5) relates to “high quality flexible business and employment space, an innovative/education hub and creative industries”. Approximately half of the site will contain built development with the other half to be designed and maintained as publicly accessible and biodiverse green space.

The delivery of Bushfield Camp will generate new employment uses that will secure new social, economic and environmental benefits for the city, capitalising on the site’s proximity to the centre of Winchester.

We want to collaborate with local stakeholders and the community to create a scheme which puts sustainability, inclusivity and wellbeing at the heart of its design.

We have extended our consultation period on the plans for Bushfield Camp.

When we launched our consultation last year, we committed to three rounds of engagement. Our events in November 2022 and January 2023 were very well attended and provided us with lots of valuable feedback. Some feedback has suggested a desire for more time to consider the proposals and so we have decided to extend our consultation period to allow us to further work with residents and key stakeholders, ensuring we achieve our aim to make the redevelopment of Bushfield Camp an outstanding addition to the city of Winchester.

We are therefore pleased to confirm our next consultation events will be held on:

Friday 19th May from 3-7pm
The Refectory, Great Minster Street

Saturday 20th May from 11am–3pm
Badger Farm Community Centre

We look forward to seeing you there.
