Who is the design statement for?

The statement has been written with two groups of people in mind:

  • those who propose any changes that may affect the appearance of the parish or the quality of the environment, such as land and property owners, developers, public utilities, commercial organisations, government bodies and agencies.
  • those who assess and decide on proposed changes, for example, members of the Whitchurch Town Council, who are consulted on all planning applications affecting the parish; the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, as the local planning authority, whose officers and Development Control Committee determine the applications; and the Planning Inspectorate and the Secretary of State, who have the final decision about the outcome of planning appeals.
