Village Design Statements for Donhead St Andrew, East Knoyle, Hindon, Teffont and Swallowcliffe

February 6, 2013 8:02 AM

VDSs are prepared by local communities, and define the special character of their village, as a basis for ensuring that new development in their area fits its surroundings and is in keeping with that character. The VDS can help everyone involved in a development to understand local views and perceptions at the outset of the design process.
This helps new buildings to be designed in a way that is more likely to gain local support.

A VDS describes the relationship between landscape, settlement patterns and buildings. From the survey analysis, the VDS identifies principles to be applied to new developments such as the design of buildings and the spaces between them. The document should benefit local people, developers, new occupants and planners.

Design Statements produced by Donhead St Andrew, East Knoyle, Hindon and Teffont were approved by Wiltshire Council's Southern Area Planning Committee in January, so now carry weight as supplementary planning documents.

To see the documents in pdf files go to the agenda and find item 9.

Swallowcliffe's VDS is up for approval on February 14th - agenda item 7.
