Swanland Village Association (SVA)

The Swanland Preservation Society was formed in 1987, primarily to fight the proposed Beech Hill development. In 1989 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 cannot deal with some issues we may suggest that you approach the appropriate Councillor or MP

The SVA 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 Membership Form. An annual general meeting, open to the public is held annually at which the committee are elected. Committee meetings are held every three months.
