Village Design Statement
This Statement should apply to the whole village, ie areas in and out of the Conservation Area, but recognises the constraints that apply to the Conservation area.
- Any development will be measured and conform to local planning policy.
- Any development should enhance and preserve the vernacular styles, existing character and appearance of that area of the village.
- Key vistas within the village and views in/out must be protected; significantly those to/from the west, the escarpment south of the village,the area around the church and views from the village.
- Important green open spaces must be retained including, but not exclusively the village green, area in vicinity of The Butcher’s Arms, any scheduled Monument are at the village core.
- Inappropriate road markings, signage and illumination should be kept to the legal minimum.
- All telecommunications equipment must be discreetly sited away from buildings’ principal elevations and/or street frontages.
- External security lighting on buildings should be kept to a minimum to avoid light pollution.
- Affordable housing should be supported and should be based on evidence of a local and recurring need and require safeguards that it should be retained as social housing in perpetuity.
Conservation Area[This section should always be read together with the above Village Design Statement.]
The statutory definition of a Conservation Area is “an area of special architectural or historic interest, the character of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance”. This special character comes not only from the quality of its buildings, but also their relationship to each other and with open spaces, views into and out of the area, street patterns and features, trees, archaeology and historic landscapes.
Conservation Area designation should enable the proper management of change in historic places, not preserve them in time or stifle new development.
Certain responsibilities are placed on those who live, work or own property in a Conservation Area, and on the District Council:
- In many cases you must apply for approval to extend or demolish all or a significant part of your property.
- You must notify Stratford District Council if you wish to undertake pruning works or fell a tree – .
- Proposals for new development, signs and advertisements will need to be sensitive to their surroundings.
- Extra planning controls apply to some building works.
