A draft Village Design Statement (VDS) has been produced by the local community for the area of Colden Common Parish, to supersede the current VDS which dates from 2012.  The VDS will provide design guidance for development within the Parish, highlighting the distinctive characteristics of the area.

The VDS is not intended to apply within the parts of the Parish of Colden Common that lie within the South Downs National Park.

Following the consideration of responses received on the draft, the VDS will be finalised for adoption by WCC as a Supplementary Planning Document.  Once adopted by WCC, the VDS will supplement the Winchester District Local Plan. 

A copy of the draft VDS can be viewed at the bottom of this page, as well as on the council's Village and Neighbourhood Design Statements page.

The council's Village and Neighbourhood Design Statements page contains more information about Winchester's Village Design Statements and includes copies of both the existing and draft revised Colden Common VDS

This consultation runs from 10th May, unti 5pm on the 20th June 2021.
