As you may know, the Local Government Boundary Commission have decided to redo the boundaries of the County divisions in Cambridgeshire.
Earlier in the year, the Commission issued a draft proposal which cut Romsey into two and moved the northern part into Abbey. A lot of people objected to this draft including many from Romsey. The Commission has now released a second draft which returns the boundary to its present position on the railway line crossing Coldhams Common. They are now asking which of the two drafts people of Cambridge prefer.
Please write to the Commission and tell them
you want to keep Romsey united and strong.
Your representation will have more weight if you give reasons why the Romsey northern boundary should stay where it is. The Commission say they don’t want to break up established communities, and Romsey is a prime example for such a case. They also say they like to use natural boundaries such as railway lines.
Please look at the re-consultation of Romsey’s boundaries here:

All we need is one last push to keep Romsey united and strong.
