In Newsletter 139, we presented a vision for Mill Road with reduced through traffic, allowing more room for cycling, pedestrians, buses and ‘people parking’. Now that this vision has been presented, we would like to organise two public consultation sessions to gather the views of people who live, work and travel in the area. The plan is to hold one session on each side of the bridge so that we cover Petersfield and Romsey. We’re planning to print off big maps of Mill Road and have them spread out for people to draw and write on. We will also have stickers for people to add to points they agree with.
The Petersfield event will be held at St Barnabas church on Monday 26 November from 4 to 7pm (to capture the after-school, after-work crowd). The Romsey event will be held at St Philip’s church but I am yet to confirm a date.
Volunteers to help with organising these events would be much appreciated. It would also be good to consider building an interactive map that people could add comment to as well. Please get in touch if you have ideas on how to achieve this or are keen to get involved in any other way with our Mill Road vision.
