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 is being drawn together by Nexus Planning and Perkins + Will Architects and studied before the next phase of the consultation.
This will help the partnership to understand how they can engage in the next stage of the project.
The outcome of this process will help to guide a masterplan for the area.
Feedback from the consultation, which will run from September to October 2018, will 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.
