Everyone in the Romsey Future partnership wants to see a healthy town centre that meets the needs of current residents and their expectations for the future.
One of the ways to achieve this is to consider how we could redevelop land south of the town centre, including the bus station and Crosfield Hall site.
Nexus Planning and Perkins & Will Architects were appointed by the partnership to undertake a major consultation exercise to listen to and work with the local community, stakeholders and residents to help in formulating a strategic vision for the town.
In autumn 2018, the partnership both held and attended a number of events to gain a wide variety of residents' views.
In November 2019, the Romsey Citizens’ Assembly was formed to discuss the future of Romsey Town Centre. Forty-two citizens broadly reflecting the population of Romsey and the surrounding parishes met over two weekends in November to discuss the issues and question experts before coming up with detailed recommendations to present to councillors.
During the Citizens' Assembly participants were taken on a guided walk around the area to discuss the options for development.
The walk went from The Hundred through to Broadwater Road car park and to Crosfield hall, before returning via Market Place to The Royal British Legion on Love Lane.

This information was drawn together by Nexus Planning and Perkins & Will Architects who together, have prepared draft Masterplan options. Consultation on the draft Masterplan options ran from 7th February 2020 until 20th March 2020.
