Hundreds protest against Allies and Morrison's Winchester scheme


To attack Allies and Morrison is to misunderstand the focus of the protest by citizens last Saturday, which was mainly focused on their brief, controlled by the City's members and officers and above all the developer, Hendersons. The design is simply the consequence of the demand for an over-supply of retail, parking, the abandonment of the provision for affordable homes by the developers, which was intrinsic to the planning brief from inception and the squeezing out of civic space.The resultant over-bulky scheme is the result of these pressures, outside the architects control. This is not a question of stylistic issues as some would seek to imply.
