The plans for the renovation of the pavement outside the Coop are now with the planning committee.
Your Romsey Councillors have worked hard to develop a plan for improving the site at the end of Cavendish Road and outside the Coop. The agreement comes after a number of meetings in which local stakeholders views were taken on board and a public consultation.
Both sites will have an underlying railway theme to celebrate the considerable part that Romsey played housing the people who managed, maintained and provided a rail service from Cambridge.
This has taken a long time - in fact at a meeting of the East Area Committee in 2013, before he was elected, Dave Baigent publicly argued 'it would seem appropriate to provide one or more meeting points and the idea of a town square involving quality paving and seating'.
Plans are also going ahead to commission a piece of art to go on the site at the end of Cavendish Road.
