A Village Design Statement describes the qualities and characteristics that people value in their village and surroundings. This document focuses on issues such as size, shape, scale and materials and the way in which new development can be positively incorporated into the local environment – the document does not intend to allocate or prevent development.
Our local community has a unique appreciation and understanding of the built surroundings and our Village Design Statement (VDS) is based upon this knowledge. It is an adopted planning document compiled and produced by the community to outline and influence the way the planning system operates locally.
Our objective is ensure that planned development in the parish of Great Oxendon is carried out in harmony with our rural setting and makes a positive contribution to the local environment.
