Design Statements & Parish Plan

KW & AW Village Design Statement

The Village Design Statement (VDS) was prepared by a group of local residents working closely with Kings Worthy Parish Council.

It provides guidance on future change and strengthens the character of the villages and their buildings within Kings Worthy and Abbotts Worthy.

A Village Design Statement describes the visual character of a village and demonstrates how local character and distinctiveness can be protected and enhanced in any new development.

This document was adopted as Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) by Winchester City Council, in February 2007.

It forms part of the Local Development Framework (LDF) for the area which forms the basis for decisions on land-use planning affecting that area.

Springvale Road Local Area Design Statement

Winchester City Council produced and adopted a Local Area Design Statement LADS for Springvale Road, Winchester which is situated mostly within the parish of Headbourne Worthy.

The document provides guidelines and identifies design criteria against which planning applications in the area will be assessed.

In 2006 a Village Design Statement (VDS) was adopted for Kings Worthy and Abbots Worthy, and the Springvale Road LADS Study Area is included within this larger area.

This LADS study produced a range of guidelines which are more specific to the Springvale Road Study Area.

The Springvale Road LADS is a Supplementary Planning Document to the Winchester District Local Plan Review (WDLPR 2006) and was adopted by the Council on 01 February 2007.

Kings Worthy Parish Plan.

'A parish plan helps to identify priorities, manage change, and encourage people of all ages to have a greater say in the future of their locality.'

After the initial meeting last November, a small Steering Group has been busy doing the groundwork for the Kings Worthy Parish Plan.

It has been identifying key facilities, services and activities in the village, investigating housing and population statistics, painting a broad picture of the Parish's environment and looking at transport issues.

We will keep you in touch with progress through the news page on this website, the parish plan website and the parish church magazine.
