Swanmore Village Design Statement Consultation 2019

Closed 5 Apr 2019

Opened 21 Feb 2019


A draft Village Design Statement (VDS) has been produced by the local community for the area of Swanmore Parish, to supersede the current VDS which dates from 2001.  The VDS will provide design guidance for development within the Parish, highlighting the distinctive characteristics of the area.

The VDS is intended to apply throughout the whole of the Parish of Swanmore.  However, as part of Swanmore Parish lies within the South Downs National Park, the South Downs National Park Authority would need to carry out any public consultation and adoption of the VDS in respect of their own planning area.

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 Parts 1 & 2.

Please take this opportunity to comment on the draft VDS via the link below.  A copy of the draft VDS is provided as part of the survey.

This consultation runs from 21st February to 5pm on the 5th April 2019.
