Easebourne Parish Design Statement
This document has been created by a dedicated team of Parish volunteers over several years and it is now proposed for adoption by the South Downs National Park Authority as a Supplementary Planning Document.
The document will, when adopted, provide design guidance for development in the Parish and will supplement the South Downs Local Plan and associated policies.
Consultation Information: Poster

The document will also be available on the SDNPA website under ‘current consultations’ – https://www.southdowns.gov.uk/planningpolicy/neighbourhood-planning/village-design-statements/

Designs on Easebourne Parish
Previous update October 2021 – The Easebourne Parish Design Statement, which covers the conurbations of Henley, KEVII and Easebourne Village itself, is now in its review stage.
The volunteer team that have been working on this over a number of years, through a global pandemic, and organisational changes in the South Downs National Park (SDNP), are reviewing our latest document hopeful that all the content required is now complete and compliant with SDNP requirements and a fair reflection of the responses of the community.
We hope a final version will be available to share soon as a final sign-off prior to the document formally being adopted by Easebourne Parish Council.
Thankyou to all of you who have contributed to date, Parishioners, Councillors, Volunteers and event organisers.
UPDATE – 6th SEPTEMBER 2019 The Consultation Period Has now Closed for the Parish Design Statement. Thank you to all those who participated. The outcome and Next Steps for the consultation will be released later this year though this website. You can follow us on Facebook, and Instagram using ‘LoveEasebourne’. If you have any questions, please email Parishdesign@easebourne.org Many thanks again
The feedback will be used to help create a vision for the Parish and the development of a Parish Design Statement. The work is being done in response to The South Downs National Park Authority’s request for all communities within the Park to contribute to the area’s planning processes. Others Parishes to have already published their Parish Design Statement include Fernhurst.
The aim is to help influence any development in the Parish so that it is in harmony with the surrounding area and reinforces local character.
A small group of Easebourne Parish residents have taken on the challenge to pull the statement together, but need to get as many views as possible from people in Easebourne, Henley and the King Edward VII development to ensure it reflects what residents want to see.
If you would like to volunteer to support this project or have any questions please feel free to contact the team at: Parishdesign@easebourne.org
