Adoption of the Landford and Wellow Village Design Statements

Members of the New Forest National Park Authority today formally adopted Village Design Statements for the parishes of Landford and Wellow.

The Village Design Statements were adopted as Supplementary Planning Documents, to provide design guidance for the parts of Landford and Wellow that lie within the New Forest National Park.

The Statements have been prepared by steering groups from the local communities, who are both keen to ensure that the design of any new development in the parishes respects the distinctive local character of the areas.

Both Village Design Statements went out to public consultation where local residents had the opportunity to comment before the Statements were considered by Members at the National Park Authority.

The Village Design Statements now form part of the Local Development Framework, to provide more detailed design guidance for the parishes, and to supplement the planning policies of the National Park Authority.

Steve Avery, Director of Strategy and Planning, said: ‘The local communities in Landford and Wellow have worked hard in preparing their draft Village Design Statements. Their Design Statements reflect how important keeping the area’s character is to the local community.’
