Jigsaw by Partnerships and Places has been selected by Winchester City Council as its Development Partner for the Central Winchester Regeneration. 

The vision is for a sustainable, pedestrian-led quarter with a mix of uses defined by attractive public spaces, reflecting the distinctive character of the city centre. The development will better connect the regeneration site – which includes Kings Walk, the demolished Friarsgate Medical Centre site and the bus station – to the wider city and district. It will bring homes for people of all life stages, which will support local people, their skills and talent in the city whilst attracting new innovators and entrepreneurs.

Over the last few months, and as the design process begins, Jigsaw has been meeting with people living across the district to discuss the evolving proposals. This website will bring you up-to-date with this process and lets you know how you can join in and shape the next chapter of Winchester’s story.
