Village Design Statements
Village Design Statements should be used by communities who want to influence the design of future development in their town or village.
Village Design Statements are used to identify and analyse local character so that future development is more in harmony with its setting and contributes to the conservation and improvement of the local environment.
They are eligible for adoption as Supplementary Planning Documents, at which point they become a material consideration and are used to ensure that applications contribute to local distinctiveness, and ensure local materials and design are incorporated into new development.
Clapham Parish Council have submitted the Clapham Parish Design Statement (CPDS) to the South Downs National Park Authority.
The SDNPA will now carry out the first round of public consultation required to adopt the CPDS as a Supplementary Planning Document as set out in the Authority’s Statement of Community Involvement.
The consultation will run for a period of 8 weeks from Monday 13 June to 23:59 on Monday 8 August 2022.
A copy of the Parish Design Statement is available to view at the South Downs Centre, North Street, Midhurst, GU29 9DH. Opening times are Monday to Friday, 9am – 4pm. Alternatively you can access the Parish Design Statement following the links below.
To make a representation please email email@example.com by Friday 10 August
