It seems that Ropley is a relatively prosperous place compared with Hampshire and more so of course within the setting of the British Isles as a whole. With a relatively high proportion of re- tired and well-off residents, an existing strong local community feeling, an attractive setting, it should be possible to manage the village to benefit both the residents and the environment.
Many residents (34%) indicated that they had problems with surface water on the highway. A small number, 6%, con- tinue to have problems in their house and garden. A major con- tributing factor is thought to be local residents who deposit grass and hedge cuttings in the ditches, and the Hampshire County Council contractors who do the same.
Nearly half of the people were in favour of more Dog Mess Bins. 29% suggested that they be located around the recreation ground, though there are two there already. There were numer- ous other suggestions, the most popular being around the Church. One respondent felt that provision should be made for horses as well!
