In June 2019 we won a competitive bidding process and were tasked with developing a masterplan for Andover town centre. Along with our partners NEW Masterplanning, and working with Test Valley Council, we are beginning a process that will help define Andover for generations to come.
Andover is an exemplar of a larger market town that was subject to growth pressures in the late 20th century and is now facing difficulties. We see this project as an opportunity for Andover to become a positive role model nationally showing how these issues can be overcome through collaborative, imaginative and community-focused regeneration.
We support Test Valley Council’s vision for Andover as a connected, green, healthy, enterprising and thriving civic centre and we’re excited to get started on this project.
We believe that it is vital that this masterplan is focused on people and place and driven forward with the principles of co-design so to kick off our engagement process we have set up a digital survey to gain the insights of the people who matter – Andover’s community.
UPDATE AUGUST 2019- On 23rd August, HemingwayDesign and NEW Masterplannning attended Andover’s Four Fun Fridays event. The team spoke to residents of all ages about their town centre and invited them to share ideas for its future.
