The Ashfield Partnership is seeking the views of the local community to help shape the development’s layout, architectural design, and best use of spaces before plans are drawn up. The Prince’s Foundation was asked to facilitate a series of events and workshops to this end. The boards on the below link provide an overview of the feedback from the two-day event in January 2020 at The Mountbatten School, Romsey.
Tuesday 14th January 4:00pm - 8:00pm
Residents were invited to view information boards explaining:
- the site,
- its designation in the local plan,
- technical studies of the land and context, and
- the project time line
They were also able to speak with the project team and give feedback - verbally, through an interactive exercise, and via feedback forms.
Wednesday 15th January 9:00am - 5:00pm
Community stakeholders representing a range of Romsey’s residents partook in a one-day workshop comprising:
- presentations on site conditions
- a site S.W.O.T analysis
- a concept masterplanning exercise
The following months will see continuing community involvement through several events. The eventual masterplan, informed by these events, will be presented in a public exhibition, and, finally, outline planning permission will be sought, scheduled for summer 2020.
