The Village Design Statement aims to describe the village as it is today and how we would like it to develop. This can then be used to guide planning and development.

It has been adopted by the Test Valley Borough Council as supplementary planning guidance so TVBC take it into account when considering planning and listed building applications.

Every household was issued with a paper copy of the final version. If you move away from the village please give yours to the new occupants of your house. People often decide to change their house soon after moving to the village so we try to give one to people who move to the village as well. Please read the VDS if you are thinking of altering your home.
