The Parish Design Statement is an important document which supports the Neighbourhood Plan. The design statement describes the parish and highlights the qualities valued by its residents. It is written by Thakeham residents with a view to ensuring that future development and change is based on a considered understanding of the parish’s past and present and will contribute positively to the future of Thakeham and protect and enhance its particular nature and improve its environment.
The current design statement (see below) is excellent but was written in 2002 and is in need of updating. The Parish Council seeks residents to be involved alongside councillors in updating this document. To express an interest, contact the Clerk.
