Village Design Statement

Village Design Statements (VDS) are prepared by local people in order to guide new development in their villages. If approved by the local council design statements are adopted as Informal Planning Guidance and used in assessing applications for development and other changes.

Work on the production of a Village Design Statement for Barton Stacey was initiated by the Parish Council following the 2013 Annual Parish Assembly. Following adoption by the parish council at their meeting of Tuesday 19th January 2016 the prepared statement was submitted to Test Valley Borough Council.

A huge well done to Mark Poole and the steering committee in producing a splendid document. Special thanks go to Antony Bearpark for the amazing graphics. The public consultation was very well received and will be a useful tool for the Parish Council as it highlights many assets of community value.
