A vision for the next 20 years

Over the next 20 years, Romsey will become the place of choice for the residents of the towns and villages in southern Test Valley to come together.

 

Romsey will thrive and grow, new communities will emerge and more people will visit both the town centre and the surrounding area.

 

Retaining its character as a compact historic market town, Romsey will continue to be closely related to the countryside around it.

Everyone involved in Romsey Future knows how special and strong Romsey’s community spirit truly is. We are proud of its past and positive about its future as we look ahead to the next few years and the part that we all have to play for the town, local countryside and wider environment. This is about our Romsey, for our future.

 

Just like other towns, Romsey is changing, and will continue to do so over the next 20 years. That’s why, as a community, we have been working together to develop a plan of action to help Romsey manage this change and ensure its heart as a vibrant, thriving market town, remains strong.

 

Since its launch in 2014, Romsey Future has worked to deliver our shared ambitions. We have now revisited what those ambitions are and how we can continue to respond and adapt to the progression that Romsey needs. The opportunity for change makes this an exciting time, but this can also bring challenges, which means it is vital that we all have a shared vision and a shared ambition.

 

Our journey so far has been about involving as many of you as possible to help mould this vision. As a result, a number of ambitions have been developed alongside our community.

These are for Romsey to be:

As we take this opportunity to revisit the ambitions and priorities for Romsey Future we will continue to ensure that the partnership is designed in a way which will mean that we continue to come together. We will work hard to encourage those who make decisions to sign up to our ambitions through our action plan, and play an active part in taking forward projects that will enhance Romsey, for everyone.

If you have an idea for a project, or would like to get involved in our work, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us here.
