was formed in 1987
primarily to fight the proposed Beech Hill development. In
it was renamed the Swanland
Village Association (SVA)
to reflect its growing
range of activities. Since then it has evolved to be a dynamic
force within the village responsible for many new initiatives.
In a nutshell, the SVA
exists primarily to keep Swanland a pleasant place to live.
It works closely with the Parish Council and other local Authorities.
If the SVA
deal with some issues we may suggest that you approach the
aims to represent the views of ALL villagers, not just SVA
members. However, new members are always welcome to involve
more people – it only costs £2 per year Download
An annual general meeting, open to the public is held annually
at which the committee are elected. Committee meetings are
held every two months. The SVA
provides this website, which sends out update e-mails of local
news. An SVA
News Letter is produced every 4 months
and the Swanland Signpost
information booklet every few years. Both of these publications
are delivered free to every household in the Village.
