ROMSEY residents are asked to help shape the future of the town.

Two 'walk and talk' tours are set to be held this month to give residents the chance to help with the forming of a masterplan that will help shape the future of the area south of the town centre.

The event is organised by The Romsey Future partnership which has appointed Nexus Planning and Perkins and Will architects to lead on the creation of the masterplan for the area including the bus station and Crosfield Hall.

Now residents are invited to highlight aspects of the area which they feel need improvement as part of any future redevelopment, or those they feel are vital to maintain.

Cllr Nick Adams-King, chair of Romsey Future, said: “Many people have already responded and put forward their views about the project to enhance the south of Romsey’s town centre.

“We are trying to reach as many people as possible to help us draw up a masterplan to take forward, and we feel it is vital for community members to let us know just what they would like to change, or, equally, be kept as it is.

“We have tried to expand our reach at Romsey Show and other major events, and the responses have been very positive. We look forward to welcoming residents to Crosfield Hall for some walking and talking.”

The events will begin at Crosfield Hall at 10.30am on October 13, and 4pm on October 16. Those who wish to attend one of the tours are encouraged to register their interest beforehand and will be prioritised on the day.
