Clapham Parish Design Statement

The Parish Council has set up a working group which is developing a 'Parish Design Statement'.  Once approved by SDNPA (which we hope will be before the end of 2017), the final document will provide useful guidelines for anyone submitting a planning application in the Parish, and should help to ensure that applications are approved first time around.

So far, the group has carried out a survey of the Parish as it is today, so that we have an accurate record of the features, look and feel of both the built areas and the all-important surrounding countryside.

Based on this, we are now planning a series of walks (see web page for details) so that residents can share their own ideas on what is important to them.  We'll repeat the same walks in the Spring,  We'll provide sketch maps and notes for anyone who can't join the group walks.

What we learn on these walks will be shared - and more input gathered - at a couple of open meetings.  Then residents' feedback will provide the basis for the planning guidelines themselves.
