The Wincheap Society

The Wincheap Society represents the interests of residents and small businesses in the Wincheap road and immediately surrounding areas. Its overriding objective is to preserve and enhance the distinctive character and environmental quality of the area.

The Society came into being in 1996, initially in response to the imminent development of Brett's sports ground - now the Wincheap Retail Park (home to Morrisons and other stores). Since then it has campaigned against - or sought to modify - inappropriate planning proposals which would have a negative impact on the street and its environs; supported any initiatives which would improve local quality of life; and campaigned for the alleviation of traffic and air pollution.

The area covered by The Wincheap Society is explained in the Constitution.

In 1999, The Wincheap Society published a document called: 'Wincheap: a Vision for the New Milllennium', which set out our ideas for improving the neighbourhood and diverting most of the traffic away from the main road. The 'Vision' can be seen here.
