Plans submitted for new youth centre for Romsey

Subject to planning permission being granted, Romsey’s young people are set for a brand new youth centre located at Romsey Sports Centre, thanks to a joint initiative by Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC) and Hampshire County Council (HCC).

An application for planning permission has been submitted this week by TVBC as the landowner on behalf of Hampshire County Council.

Youth in Romsey has operated for many years in upstairs premises above a shop in Bell Street but this has long been considered, not least by Romsey’s young people, as a less than desirable location. Not only is there difficult access for any youngsters with disabilities, but loud music much beloved of teenagers is not always appreciated by the neighbours.

The scheme has been in the Council’s Capital Programme for the past two years and it is hoped that the new facility will provide a more suitable home for Youth in Romsey.
