Romsey Extra Ward Profile


Ward profiles have been developed for each of the 24 ward areas in Test Valley. The profiles aim to provide consistent information about local communities across the borough. It is hoped that these profiles will allow a greater understanding of your local area and help to identify priorities for the community.

Below you will find a detailed ward profile for Abbey, as well as a profile for Romsey town (Abbey, Cupernham and Tadburn wards) and Romsey Extra. If you would like further information about a specific area or data set, please contact the Policy Team on 01264 368000 or and we will work with you to provide a more detailed profile.

'Ward' is a term used by the Council and other public sector bodies to define an area. Each ward has at least one Borough Councillor who has been elected by the people who live in that ward to represent their views.


Romsey Extra covers 3,250 hectares in the south of Test Valley. The ward surrounds the three wards that make up the town of Romsey. The southern edge of the ward borders the New Forest, which is designated as a National Park.

Those living in the north of the ward tend to have a sense of community focused toward Romsey town. Residents in the south tend to look toward Southampton, just south of the ward, as this is where many residents work and spend their leisure time.
