Village Design Statements

Village Design Statements are documents developed, researched, written and edited by the people of the village. It describes the qualities and characteristics that local people value about the village and sets out clear and simple guidance for the design of all development within the village. Whilst a Village Design Statement cannot be used to stop new development, it can be used to influence developers and residents when developing proposals for new development, and to ensure that new buildings respect and reflect local character. Once adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), it becomes a material consideration when considering planning applications.
