RESIDENTS and business owners in a Winchester street could see their electricity supply boosted after numerous recent failures.

Residents’ associations, Winchester Business Improvement District (BID) and spokespeople for Winchester City Council met Southern Electric after months of cuts along Jewry Street.

It has been reported the area has had over 15 power failures over the last 12 months.

Now talks between the utility company, residents and businesses have resulted in a proposal that could see Jewry Street houses and shops powered by mini sub-station.

A spokesman for Southern Electric said: “There has been a huge change in use in the street from domestic use to light commercial and restaurants. We are working with the local council to find a suitable location for a new substation to address the issue though we do not yet have a timescale at present.”
