Romsey TDS SPD

A Town Design Statement Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the Parishes of Romsey Town and the Crampmoor, Halterworth, Highwood, Ganger and Woodley parts of Romsey Extra  was adopted by the Council on 10 January 2008, following a recommendation from the Executive Committee on 28th November 2007. 

This document now forms part of the Local Development (LDF) for the area and therefore forms part of the basis for decisions on land use planning affecting the area.
