The Sway Village Design Statement

The Sway Village Design Statement

The purpose of a Village Design Statement is to describe the character of the parish; drawing out those aspects that make it special and distinctive. Included are Guidelines that can influence design of any new development or extensions in order to retain the local character of the area.

The production of The Sway Village Design Statement (SVDS) followed a request by Sway Parish Council in 2011 to gather together interested volunteers to form a Steering Group who were tasked with producing the document.

The document has thus been developed, researched, written and edited entirely by residents of Sway.

The steering group which was formed set up interest groups who were tasked with collating information covering topics such as the history, economy, access and transport, community facilities, land use and design and settlement. The document draws its findings from both the subsequent public consultation and the results from the 1780 questionnaires that were sent out to all households. It is based on the reflection of the views expressed by the residents.
