Community Governance Review 2021

What was the area under review?

Romsey Town Council

The proposal from Romsey Town Council which led to this CGR was to extend the boundaries of Romsey Town. Romsey Town was entirely surrounded by Romsey Extra parish, and therefore the area within the scope of the review had been set as the area covered by two parishes of Romsey Town and Romsey Extra Parishes.

Romsey Town Council had clarified that it was seeking to extend its boundaries so that the Romsey Town covers the same area as the three Test Valley Borough Council Romsey Wards (Abbey, Cupernham and Tadburn).

A document setting out possible options for governance arrangements was prepared and is available to download under Part twelve: Useful documents.  This document assisted those who wished to respond and participate in the CGR. Representations were welcomed from adjacent parishes who might be affected if one of these options were to be implemented

Although the area under review was limited to Romsey and Romsey Extra parishes, anyone (regardless of where they live or work) was able to submit representations on the review. Representations were limited to those who lived or worked in these two parishes.

Valley Park Parish Council

The parish of Valley Park was the areas covered by this Review.
