Introduction - South of Town Centre project
The Romsey Future partnership is set to launch its second phase of the consultation with residents on the creation of a Masterplan for the area south of the town centre. We want 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. This information has been drawn together by Nexus Planning and Perkins & Will Architects who together, have prepared draft Masterplan options. Consultation on the draft Masterplan commenced on 7th February 2020, and ran until 20th March 2020.
The outcome of this process will help to finalise the Masterplan for the area.
The Masterplan will then be used to help create a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) which will guide potential developers.
The SPD will set out the community’s aspirations for the area for future developers. The SPD will build upon and provide more detailed guidance about policies in the Local Plan.
