THE deadline is approaching for people to tell Winchester City council what they think of plans to build on a city car park.

Civic chiefs want to redevelop the Chesil Street open air car park with 50 flats for the elderly.

It is asking users to complete a questionnaire by Monday.

The proposal has proved very unpopular with Chesil Street residents and local businesses, including The Black Boy and Black Rat.

The council says there is spare capacity in the nearby multi-storey car park.
