This village design statement was Conceived, researched, collated, written and published as a Community Project.

What is the Wansford Village Design Statement?

Our Village Design Statement (VDS) has been researched and written by members of the local
community and describes Wansford as it is today; underscoring the many qualities and characteristics
of the village most valued by its residents. All households in Wansford were invited, indeed
encouraged, to participate so that essential local knowledge, views and ideas would form the very
essence of this VDS.

The objective of the VDS is to ensure that future changes and development in the village are
viewed in the light of this carefully considered understanding of Wansford’s past history and the
present day situation, formed by a consensus of those best qualified to form such an opinion –
Wansford residents.

It therefore offers a significant and positive contribution towards the future evolution of the
village to enhance and protect Wansford’s distinct character and heritage within a clearly defined, 21st
century, context.
