In a recent newsletter edition, CamCycle 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 get the views of people who live, work and travel in the area. The plan is to hold one session of each side of the bridge so we cover Petersfield and Romsey.
The Petersfield event will be held at St Barnabas church on Tuesday, October 16 from 4-7pm (to capture the after school, after work crowd). The Romsey event will be held at St Philips church hopefully the following week, but I am yet to confirm a date.
It would be great to get some input into these events, as I am new to the area so getting some historical/planning background would help. And if anyone would like to help with organising them that would be great as well. We're planning on printing off big maps of Mill Road and having them spread out for people to draw and write on. We will also have stickers for people to add to points they agree with.
It would be great if we could have an online method of contributing as well, as I know sometimes turning up in person isn't possible. I think an interactive map that people can add comments to and then other people can 'like' would be a good way to do this. So if anyone has ideas about building something like this, that would be very useful.
