Romsey Extra is a large Parish of 3,306 hectares with a population of 4,826 (2010), which surrounds the town of Romsey and includes the villages of Abbotswood, Ashfield, Lee, Moorcourt, Skidmore, Pauncefoot, Halterworth and Stanbridge Earls. The latter village was a royal possession in Saxon times, and the 17th Century house is said to be on the site of King Aethelwulf's manor house.

Broadlands House is set on the River Test immediately to the South of Romsey and Viscount Palmerston employed Lancelot ("Capability") Brown to improve the mansion in 1767-8. Further alterations were made by Holland in 1788. Lord Palmerston, the Victorian Prime Minister was born here, and the house was the home of the late Earl Mountbatten of Burma.

Hampshire County Council is seeking the views of residents about 20 mph limits within Hampshire.

The County Council is keen to hear from as many residents, businesses and other stakeholders as possible, to find out their views on the implementation of 20mph limits in the context of other highways priorities and the County Council's statutory duties to maintain the highway in a safe condition within a limited budget. 

The findings from the survey, together with data about use of the highway, speed enforcement, road safety and environmental impacts will be important in helping to shape future policy relating to 20mph speed limits in Hampshire and, in turn, future decision-making around 20mph speed limits. 

The survey is available at: https://www.hants.gov.uk/transport/transportschemes/20mph-speed-limits-consultation and should take just 15 minutes to complete.

It is open until midnight on Monday 12 September 2022.
