CIVIC chiefs will be giving an update on progress of a major housing development at an upcoming meeting.

The Kings Barton Forum on January 21 will see Winchester City Council share updates on the scheme.

The agenda features many topics such as meadows in the area and how the council's ambitions to reach carbon neutrality will be used in the development.

Members of the public are also invited to speak at the forum, running at the Guildhall from 6.30pm, with a section set to be dedicated to public participation.

Barton Farm, also known as Kings Barton, is a landmark development on farmland off Andover Road which will have 2,000 homes when finished.

Plans also include a primary school, health centre, shops, leisure facilities, sustainable transport links and green space.
