Look at Romsey

Attended this evening's meeting at the Town Hall. The Court Room was packed. The idea is to produce a design statement for the town but if all goes according to plan then Romsey will produce something rather unique. Three or four other towns have produced a design statement but those statements have been presented as a unified whole. Romsey is different inasmuch as the town has been divided into ten areas and residents of each area are producing their own statement.

The delight of these meetings is that I always learn something new about the town and I am proud to be part of a town where the citizens are so actively engaged in what goes on - although I suspect that the planners disagree. .
